Femtosecond laser-induced magnetization dynamics has recently been related to superdiffusive spin transport. With the aim to accurately compute spin superdiffusion in the complex geometries of layered heterostructures and free standing layers, we develop here a dedicated numerical scheme. We introduce a discretization technique to solve the superdiffusive equation numerically on a time and space grid. The discretization scheme facilitates an explicit treatment of the total reflection at the vacuum-material surfaces as well as of partial reflections at the interfaces between two different materials. The advantages of the numerical technique are discussed.
