Abstract
The implementation of the phase-space, wave-kinetic method is proposed for the simulation of photonic crystals. Although full-wave methods lead to higher accuracy, computational speed remains a problem. Consequently, a subset of the wave-kinetic method isproposed which nearly has the speed of ray-tracing, but the result is superior to the beam propagation method. This method, called
