**TITLE: **An
Omni-directional Curl Operator and the IVMCEM Method

**ABSTRACT:**

I describe the omni-directional
curl operator and the IVMCEM method (a fully discrete computational
electromagnetic time-domain solver). The spatial methodology I employ
decomposes a vector field into six components at every node within an
associated FCC grid, and provides an algorithm whereby the vector calculus curl
is obtained (I now refer to this curl algorithm as the omni-directional curl
operator).
