    This thesis presents several improvements on simulation methods in integrated optics, as well as some new methods. Both uni- and omnidirectional tools are presented; for the unidirectional methods, the emphasis is on higher-order accuracy; for the omnidirectional methods, the boundary conditions are extremely important, and care must be taken with the incoming field definition. The omnidirectional methods are applied to two different types of structures, a cylindrical microcavity and photonic bandgap crystals.
