We consider the efficient solution of electromagnetics problems involving dielectric and composite dielectric-metallic structures, formulated with the electric and magnetic current combined-field integral equation (JMCFIE). Dense matrix equations obtained from the discretization of JMCFIE with Rao-Wilton-Glisson functions are solved iteratively, where the matrix-vector multiplications are performed efficiently with the multilevel fast multipole algorithm. JMCFIE usually provides well conditioned matrix equations that are easy to solve iteratively. However, iteration counts and the efficiency of solutions depend on the contrast, i.e., the relative variation of electromagnetic parameters across dielectric interfaces. Owing to the numerical imbalance of off-diagonal matrix partitions, solutions of JMCFIE become difficult with increasing contrast. We present a four-partition block-diagonal preconditioner (4PBDP), which provides efficient solutions of JMCFIE by reducing the number of iterations significantly. 4PBDP is useful, especially when the contrast increases, and the standard block-diagonal preconditioner fails to provide a rapid convergence.

Improving the accuracy of the surface integral equations for low-contrast dielectric scatterers
Ergül, Özgür Salih (2007-06-15)
Solutions of scattering problems involving low-contrast dielectric objects are considered by employing surface integral equations. A stabilization procedure based on extracting the non-radiating part of the induced currents is applied so that the remaining radiating currents can be modelled appropriately and the scattered fields from the low-contrast objects can be calculated with improved accuracy. Stabilization is applied to both tangential (T) and normal (N) formulations in order to use the benefits of d...
Accuracy of the Surface Integral-equation Formulations for Large Negative Permittivity Values
Karaosmanoglu, B.; Ergül, Özgür Salih (2017-05-25)
Computational solutions of plasmonic problems involving metals at optical frequencies formulated with surface integral equations are considered. Numerical inaccuracies arise when using the conventional formulations for penetrable bodies, especially as the negative real permittivity becomes very large at the lower frequencies of the optical spectrum. In order to close the gap between plasmonic and perfectly conducting simulations, it is required to extend the applicability of surface integral equations to in...
Parallel-MLFMA Solutions of Large-Scale Problems Involving Composite Objects
Ergül, Özgür Salih (2012-07-14)
We present a parallel implementation of the multilevel fast multipole algorithm (MLFMA) for fast and accurate solutions of large-scale electromagnetics problems involving composite objects with dielectric and metallic parts. Problems are formulated with the electric and magnetic current combined-field integral equation (JMCFIE) and solved iteratively with MLFMA on distributed-memory architectures. Numerical examples involving canonical and complicated objects, such as optical metamaterials, are presented to...
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 ...
Linear-linear basis functions for MLFMA solutions of magnetic-field and combined-field integral equations
Ergül, Özgür Salih (2007-04-01)
We present the linear-linear (LL) basis functions to improve the accuracy of the magnetic-field integral equation (MFIE) and the combined-field integral equation (CFIE) for three-dimensional electromagnetic scattering problems involving closed conductors. We consider the solutions of relatively large scattering problems by employing the multilevel fast multipole algorithm. Accuracy problems of MFIE and CFIE arising from their implementations with the conventional Rao-Wilton-Glisson (RWG) basis functions can...
