Abstract
In the proposed method a directional decomposition of the electromagnetic field is made by eliminating the two field components along the propagation direction from the Maxwell equations. This results in a full vectorial two-way wave equation for the forward and backward traveling waves. By a simple manipulation, a set of two coupled one-way wave equations is constructed, which are pseudo-differential equations and contain simple terms for the interaction between the counter-propagating waves. The Green tensors corresponding to the one-way wave equations are expressed in terms of path integrals and can be based either upon the pseudo-differential operator or upon the corresponding left symbol. Using these path integrals a Bremmer coupling series is applied which completes the directional decomposition procedure. This new scheme encompasses all existing BPM-type methods. Some numerical results are given for a new BPM-type algorithm based upon the application of left symbols.
