have a wave equation:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

(∂^2 p)/〖∂z〗^2 -1/c^2 (∂^2 p)/〖∂t〗^2

In my case, (fields propagation within a semiconductor laser)

Which can be factored into forward propagating photon density:

(∂p^+)/∂t+C_g (∂p^+)/∂z=C_g Gp^++〖1/2 βR〗_sp

And backward propagation wave (photon density):

〖∂p〗^-/∂t-C_g (∂p^-)/∂t=C_g Gp^-+〖1/2 βR〗_sp

The photons are due to direct modulation of a laser, with the carrier density given by:

∂n/∂t=J/qd-n/τ_nr -〖R_sp-C〗_g G(p^++p^-)

I applied method of lines to discritizze the spatial variable, using backward difference to Forward photon and forward difference to backward photon density to obtain a system of first order ODEs, I then applied first order Finite differences for the time variable to obtain the following equations:

Equation 1

(p^+ (t+1,z)-p^+ (t,z))/Δt+C_g (p^+ (t,z)-p^+ (t-1,z))/Δz=C_g.G〖(n(t,z) ).p〗^++〖1/2 β.R〗_sp (n(t,z))

Equation 2

(p^- (t+1,z)-p^- (t,z))/Δt-C_g (p^- (t,z)-p^- (t,z+1))/Δz=C_g.G〖(n(t,z) ).(p〗^++〖1/2 β.R〗_sp (n(t,z))

Equation 3

(n(t,z)-n(t-1,z))/Δt=J(t,z)/qd-n(t,z)/τ_nr - R_sp (n(t,z) )G〖(n(t,z) )-〖1/2 C〗_g G〖(n(t,z) ) 〖.(p〗〗^+ (t,z)+p〗^- (t,z)+p^+ (t,z-1)+p^- (t,z-1) )

I now want to solve these using MATLAB

Can any body help with any recipe, particularly the best algorithm or code to solve such a scenario varying in both time and space?

I have attached a word document with better readable equations
