Hopefully, I'm working towards an understanding of the innards of such

Companies such as Ansoft and CST (now owned by Dassault) employ whole
buildings full of people with PhDs to do this sort of thing, it's
definitely a major undertaking and the end result is quite expensive to
buy a licence to use.

Where I studied this stuff originally just coming up to 50 years ago,
there was never enough time allowed in the courses to really understand
what was happening, you just had to recognise the formulae and where to
apply them in exam questions. I drifted away from electromagnetics in
the 3rd year, specialising in computer engineering, so never really got
much past Maxwell, but now, because of the amateur radio interest,
especially antennae, I'd now like to take on a deep understanding of
what's happening. Taken with my 44 year career as a real-time softy, I'm
confident that I shall succeed in my goal unless I lose interest in
yet another "vapour" pursuit, as some nonce puts it.

What's the officially recognised way to address a PhD recipient? ...
