Stephen Gedney

Stephen D. Gedney is an American electrical engineer, currently the chair and Professor of Electrical Engineering at the University of Colorado Denver's College of Engineering, Design and Computing.[1][2] Gedney is a pioneer in computational electromagnetic techniques. He is most widely known for his development of the Uniaxial Perfectly Matched Layer media method,[3] the complex-frequency shifted convolutional PML, along with J. Alan Roden,[4] and his contributions to the Locally Corrected Nystrom method.[5] Gedney's papers and textbook on the finite difference time domain technique in particular are widely cited.[6] Gedney is an IEEE Fellow.
