In the past I have been working with Matlab to do simulations of electro-statics and electro-dynamics. More specifically solving the Maxwell equations for given structures and setups. I am now looking for specifically designed software to use.


  1. Speed. (Faster is better)
  2. Whether the software can use GPU calculations (Cuda exc..). (Comsol does not).
  3. Ease of use (Does it support coding? How easy it is to create structures? Can structures and materials be imported?)
  4. licensed for Multiple machines and workstations (this is for university work).

So far I have considered: Comsol and Matlab.
