We use a novel homogenization method to compute the frequency dependent permeability of a split-ring periodic structure. Instead of meshing the small split of the metallic ring, we introduce a cutting surface through which the magnetic potential has a jump. Thus, we obtain the expected negative permeability of this metamaterials with a minimal cost.
