We consider fast and accurate solutions of electromagnetics problems involving three-dimensional photonic crystals (PhCs). Problems are formulated with the combined tangential formulation (CTF) and the electric and magnetic current combined-field integral equation (JMCFIE) discretized with the Rao-Wilton-Glisson functions. Matrix equations are solved iteratively by the multilevel fast multipole algorithm. Since PhC problems are difficult to solve iteratively, robust preconditioning techniques are required to accelerate iterative solutions. We show that novel approximate Schur preconditioners enable efficient solutions of PhC problems by reducing the number of iterations significantly for both CTF and JMCFIE.

Being both low-frequency-stable and resonance-free, CPFF is ...

We present a fast and accurate analysis of double-negative materials (DNMs) with surface integral equations and the multilevel fast multipole algorithm (MLFMA). DNMs are commonly used as simplified models of metamaterials at resonance frequencies and are suitable to be formulated with surface integral equations. However, realistic metamaterials and their models are usually very large with respect to wavelength and their accurate solutions require fast algorithms, such as MLFMA. We consider iterative solutio...
