This paper introduces a new paradigm in the electromagnetic (EM) analysis of largely inhomogeneous nanostructures. It is shown that the high degree of inhomogeneity may render the traditional discretisation of such topologies problematic. A new discretisation scheme that is much better matched to these topologies is proposed. The scheme involves a more adequate meshing and discretisation formalism, in conjunction with an original combination of dual space-time EM field quantities to be calculated. The pivotal field equations are elaborately discussed, with an emphasis on their computational implications.
