An efficient finite-element vector beam propagation formulation for dielectric media with transverse anisotropy is thoroughly presented. This formulation is expressed in terms of the magnetic field's transverse components and includes perfectly matched layers at the truncated boundaries and the wide-angle Pade approach. Several key examples demonstrate the usefulness and effectiveness of the present scheme.
