Finite Difference Time-Domain (FDTD) is one of the most widely used numerical method for solving electromagnetic problems. Solutions for these problems are computationally expensive in terms of processing time. Recently, we develop a method, High Speed Low Order FDTD (HSLO-FDTD) that is proven to solve one dimensional electromagnetic problem with a reduction of 67% of processing time from the FDTD method. In this paper, we extend the method to solve two dimensional wave propagation problem. Since the problem is large, we develop the parallel version of HSLO-FDTD method on distributed memory multiprocessor machine using message-passing interface. We examine the parallelism efficiency of the algorithm by analyzing the execution time and speed-up. © Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2007.
