We present fast and accurate solutions of large-scale electromagnetics problems involving three-dimensional homogeneous dielectric objects. Problems are formulated rigorously with the electric and magnetic current combined-field integral equation (JMCFIE) and solved iteratively with the multilevel fast multipole algorithm (MLFMA). In order to solve large-scale problems, MLFMA is parallelized efficiently on distributed-memory architectures using the hierarchical partitioning strategy. Efficiency and accuracy of the developed implementation are demonstrated on very large scattering problems discretized with tens of millions of unknowns.

We present the stabilization of the surface integral equationsfor accurate solutions of scattering problems involvinglow-contrast dielectric objects. Unlike volume formulations,conventional surface formulations fail to provide accurateresults for the scatteredfields when the contrast of theobject is small. Therefore, surface formulations are requiredto be stabilized by extracting the nonradiating parts of theequivalent currents. In addition to previous strategies forthe stabilization, we introduce a n...
Efficient Multilayer Iterative Solutions of Electromagnetic Problems Using Approximate Forms of the Multilevel Fast Multipole Algorithm
Onol, Can; Ucuncu, Arif; Ergül, Özgür Salih (2017-01-01)
We consider efficient iterative solutions of large-scale electromagnetic problems involving metallic objects. For fast iterative solutions, a multilayer scheme using approximate forms of the multilevel fast multipole algorithm is developed. The approach is based on preconditioning each layer with iterative solutions at a lower layer, while the accuracy is changed from the top layer to the bottom layer. As opposed to the conventionally used algebraic preconditioners, the multilayer scheme: 1) does not requir...
