Summary:
In this thesis, discretized finite element equations were derived and applied to the solution of electromagnetic fields in homogeneous and inhomogeneous waveguides. To improve the accuracy of the results several approaches were taken. Higher order elements were first introduced in the finite element formulation, then a penalty function was applied with explicit boundary conditions, which limit the appearance of nonphysical solutions. The results obtained from the finite element analysis were compared to analytical results when available and found to be very accurate.
