4.3 Reduced Order Modelling

This section demonstrates how to use the reduced order modelling features in Finesse and Pykat which allow for fast computation of higher-order mode scattering by producing a very efficient quadrature rule.

More details on this method can be found in the paper "Fast simulation of Gaussian-mode scattering for precision interferometry" Brown, 2016.
