Implementation of the Equivalence Principle Algorithm for Potential Integral Equations

Farshkaran, Ali
Ergül, Özgür Salih
A novel implementation of the equivalence principle algorithm (EPA) employing potential integral equations (PIEs) is presented. EPA is generalized to be compatible with PIEs that are used to formulate inner problems inside equivalence surfaces. Based on the stability of PIEs, the resulting EPA-PIE implementation is suitable for low-frequency problems involving dense discretizations with respect to wavelength. Along with the formulation and a clear demonstration of the EPA-PIE mechanism, high accuracy, stability, and efficiency of the implementation are presented on canonical problems.


Derivation of length extension formulas for complementary sets of sequences using orthogonal filterbanks
Candan, Çağatay (Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), 2006-11-23)
A method for the construction of complementary sets of sequences using polyphase representation of orthogonal filterbanks is presented. It is shown that the case of two-channel filterbanks unifies individually derived length extension formulas for complementary sequences into a common framework and the general M-channel case produces novel formulas for the extension of complementary sets of sequences. The presented technique can also be used to generate polyphase and multilevel sequences.
Efficient solution of the electric-field integral equation using the iterative LSQR algorithm
Ergül, Özgür Salih (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2008-01-01)
In this letter, we consider iterative solutions of the three-dimensional electromagnetic scattering problems formulated by surface integral equations. We show that solutions of the electric-field integral equation (EFIE) can be improved by employing an iterative least-squares QR (LSQR) algorithm. Compared to many other Krylov subspace methods, LSQR provides faster convergence and it becomes an alternative choice to the time-efficient no-restart generalized minimal residual (GMRES) algorithm that requires la...

Karaosmanoglu, Bariscan; Ergül, Özgür Salih (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2017-01-01)
A recently developed numerical technique for improving the accuracy of the magnetic-field integral equation and the combined-field integral equation with low-order discretizations using the Rao-Wilton-Glisson functions is demonstrated on iterative solutions of large-scale complex problems, in order to prove the effectiveness of the proposed strategy as an alternative way for accurate and efficient analysis of multifrequency applications.
Iterative leap-field domain decomposition method: a domain decomposition finite element algorithm for 3D electromagnetic boundary value problems
Ozgun, O.; Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa (Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), 2010-04-01)
The authors introduce the iterative leap-field domain decomposition method that is tailored to the finite element method, by combining the concept of domain decomposition and the Huygens' Principle. In this method, a large-scale electromagnetic boundary value problem is partitioned into a number of suitably-defined 'small' and manageable subproblems whose solutions are assembled to obtain the global solution. The main idea of the method is the iterative application of the Huygens' Principle to the fields ra...
Use of Asymptotic Waveform Evaluation Technique in the Analysis of Multilayer Structures With Doubly Periodic Dielectric Gratings
Gudu, Tamer; Alatan, Lale (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2009-09-01)
The reflection and dispersion characteristics of multilayer structures that involve periodically implanted material blocks are obtained by using the MoM solution of the volume integral equation. The asymptotic waveform evaluation (AWE) technique is utilized to obtain a Pade approximation of the solution in terms of a parameter such as frequency or incident angle. The use of AWE technique enables a fast sweep with respect to the approximation parameter. Moreover, a robust method for extracting the dispersion...
