This chapter introduces a number of deterministic radiowave propagation prediction methods and discuss briefly the computational issues arising in their practical implementation. Ideally, we wish to solve Maxwell's equations exactly by specifying a boundary value problem to a sufficient degree of accuracy, subject to some initial conditions. The boundary value problem in this case is the geometrical and electrical description of the radio environment down to subwavelength accuracy, whereas the initial conditions are the current distribution on the transmitting antenna.

Inspec keywords: boundary-value problems; radiowave propagation; transmitting antennas; current distribution; Maxwell equations
