In this paper, the authors review some of the recent advances in the theory of photonic crystals, drawing examples from their own work in magnetooptical and dynamic photonic crystals. The combination of theory and simulations shows that these crystal structures exhibit rich optical physics effects and can provide new ways to accomplish sophisticated optical information-processing tasks.
