We describe an algorithm and data structures to carry out auxiliary computations on arbitrary surfaces cutting through the computational domain of FDTD, and their implementation within the Guile process grafted on top of a legacy application. The tools so developed are then used to verify the code by comparing numerical and analytical solutions for harmonic wave scattering on a dielectric ball.
