Improved testing of the magnetic-field integral equation

An improved implementation of the magnetic-field integral equation (MFIE) is presented in order to eliminate some of the restrictions on the testing integral due to the singularities. Galerkin solution of the MFIE by the method of moments employing piecewise linear Rao-Wilton-Glisson basis and testing functions on planar triangulations of arbitrary surfaces is considered. In addition to demonstrating the ability to sample the testing integrals on the singular edges, a key integral is rederived not only to obtain accurate results, but to manifest the implicit solid-angle dependence of the MFIE as well.
