Our aim is to implement an FMM (Fast Multipole Method) solver using the approach given by Chew [35] for diagonalization of vector addition theorem. Scatterer bodies will be modeled as ensemble of smaller spheres with same constitutive properties and then will be analyzed using the FMM solver. For general scattering problems, it is hard to obtain an analytical solution. There are only some special cases where exact solutions are possible. Hence, for the investigation of problems where numbers of scatterers are high, numerical methods like FMM are necessary. For the analysis of scattering problem, FMM is an effective tool. Hence, mathematical background of the method is investigated. Addition theorem is examined for the expression of the wave functions in distinct coordinate systems. Starting from the scalar addition theorem, vector addition theorem in spherical coordinates is investigated. Since, computation period spent for the calculation of the translation coefficients is high; recursive methods for the calculations are also analyzed.

Efficient preconditioning strategies for the multilevel fast multipole algorithm
Gurel, Levent; Malas, Tahir; Ergül, Özgür Salih (2007-03-30)
For the iterative solutions of the integral equation methods employing the multilevel fast multipole algorithm (MLFMA), effective preconditioning techniques should be developed for robustness and efficiency. Preconditioning techniques for such problems can be broadly classified as fixed preconditioners that are generated from the sparse near-field matrix and variable ones that can make use of MLFMA with the help of the flexible solvers. Among fixed preconditioners, we show that an incomplete LU precondition...
Modified Superformula Contours Optimized via Genetic Algorithms for Exponentially Converging 2D Solutions of MFIE
Guler, Sadri; Onol, Can; Ergül, Özgür Salih; Sever, Emrah; Dikmen, Fatih; Tuchkin, Yury A. (2017-05-25)
An infinitely smooth parametrical representation with derivatives of all orders is used, resulting into exponentially converging solutions of magnetic field integral equation (MFIE) in 2D either for TM or TE polarized excitations. A version of superformula modified for this purpose has been subject to optimization of its parameters via genetic algorithms to provide smooth parameterization for a desired boundary in two-dimensional problems. The organization of the MFIE kernel and convergence of the solution ...
Rigorous Solutions of Large-Scale Scattering Problems Discretized with Hundreds of Millions of Unknowns
Guerel, L.; Ergül, Özgür Salih (2009-09-18)
We present fast and accurate solutions of large-scale scattering problems using a parallel implementation of the multilevel fast multipole algorithm (MLFMA). By employing a hierarchical partitioning strategy, MLFMA can be parallelized efficiently on distributed-memory architectures. This way, it becomes possible to solve very large problems discretized with hundreds of millions of unknowns. Effectiveness of the developed simulation environment is demonstrated on various scattering problems involving canonic...
Benchmark Solutions of Large Problems for Evaluating Accuracy and Efficiency of Electromagnetics Solvers
Gurel, Levent; Ergül, Özgür Salih (2011-07-08)
We present a set of benchmark problems involving conducting spheres and their solutions using a parallel implementation of the multilevel fast multipole algorithm (MLFMA). Accuracy of the implementation is tested by comparing the computational results with analytical Mie-series solutions. Reference solutions are made available on an interactive website to evaluate and compare the accuracy and efficiency of fast solvers. We also demonstrate the capabilities of our solver on real-life problems involving compl...
Broadband Analysis of Multiscale Electromagnetic Problems: Novel Incomplete-Leaf MLFMA for Potential Integral Equations
Khalichi, Bahram; Ergül, Özgür Salih; Takrimi, Manouchehr; Erturk, Vakur B. (2021-12-01)
Recently introduced incomplete tree structures for the magnetic-field integral equation are modified and used in conjunction with the mixed-form multilevel fast multipole algorithm (MLFMA) to employ a novel broadband incomplete-leaf MLFMA (IL-MLFMA) to the solution of potential integral equations (PIEs) for scattering/radiation from multiscale open and closed surfaces. This population-based algorithm deploys a nonuniform clustering that enables to use deep levels safely and, when necessary, without compromi...
