We present a broadband implementation of the multilevel fast multipole algorithm (MLFMA) for fast and accurate solutions of multiscale problems involving highly nonuniform discretizations. Incomplete tree structures, which are based on population-based clustering with flexible leaf-level boxes at different levels, are used to handle extremely varying triangulation sizes on the same structures. Superior efficiency and accuracy of the developed implementation, in comparison to the standard and broadband MLFMA solvers employing conventional tree structures, are demonstrated on practical problems.
