Simulation tools capable of transient electromagnetic analysis are essential for designing and optimizing electromagnetic, photonic, and optoelectronic devices. In recent years, time-domain differential equation based solvers have found widespread use due to their advantages over integral equation counterparts in analyzing transient electromagnetic field/wave interactions and multiphysics problems. This dissertation develops a group of time-domain differential equation solvers for analyzing transient electromagnetic scattering from penetrable objects and multiphysics phenomena in optoelectronic devices. In addition to providing detailed formulations of these solvers, this dissertation presents numerical examples which demonstrate their accuracy, efficiency, and applicability to real-life problems.
