The Z transform is typically used in digital filtering and signal processing problems. The paper illustrates the use of the Z transform in implementing the FDTD method where it is useful to avoid dealing with convolution integral in the time domain by going immediately to Z domain. This work study the pulse propagation in free space that comes upon a plasma. Plasma is very interesting medium and the results illustrated that at low frequencies, it looks like a metal, and higher frequency, it become transparent just like a dielectric medium.
