An overview is given on the potential impact of advances in computer capabilities and finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) algorithms upon the maximum feasible size and complexity of three-dimensional FDTD electromagnetic wave models. It is emphasized that such developments point toward the routine usage by 2015 of ultralarge-scale FDTD electromagnetic wave modes that can cover the frequency range from 101-1017 Hz.
