The multiresolution time domain (MRTD) is used to analyze wide-band plane-wave scattering from general dielectric targets embedded in a lossy half-space, with free-space scattering as a special case. A Haar wavelet expansion is used for simplicity, this constituting a generalization of the widely used finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) method. In addition to developing the mathematical formulation, example results are presented for several targets, with the MRTD results validated through comparison with an independent frequency-domain method-of-moments solution and an FDTD model.
