Forward-backward domain decomposition method for finite element solution of electromagnetic boundary value problems

We introduce the forward-backward domain decomposition method (FB-DDM), which is basically an improved version of the classical alternating Schwarz method with overlapping subdomains,for electromagnetic, boundary value problems. The proposed method is non-iterative in some cases involving smooth geometries, or it usually converges in a few iterations in other cases involving challenging geometries, via the utilization of the locally-conformal PML method. We report some numerical results for two- dimensional electromagnetic scattering problems. (c) 2007 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
