We present a novel numerical approach to design testing functions for the magnetic-field integral equation (MFIE). Enforcing the compatibility of matrix equations derived from MFIE and the electric-field integral equation (EFIE) for the same problem, testing weights for MFIE are determined on given templates of testing functions. The resulting MFIE systems produce more accurate results that the conventional MFIE implementations, without increasing the number of iterations and processing time. The design procedure can also be used for more general cases, e.g., for dielectric objects, where the behavior of different integral equations have been well studied and identified.

Improving the Accuracy of MFIE and CFIE by Using Numerically Designed Testing Functions
Karaosmanoglu, Bariscan; Ergül, Özgür Salih (2016-07-01)
We present a novel approach for improving the accuracy of the magnetic-field integral equation (MFIE) and the combined-field integral equation (CFIE) by using numerically designed testing functions. The compatibility of the MFIE and CFIE systems with the corresponding one derived from the electric-field integral equation (EFIE) is used to determine testing weights in given templates of testing directions. The designed testing functions lead to more accurate solutions in comparison to the standard discretiza...
Parallel preconditioners for solutions of dense linear systems with tens of millions of unknowns
Malas, Tahir; Ergül, Özgür Salih; Gurel, Levent (2007-11-09)
We propose novel parallel preconditioning schemes for the iterative solution of integral equation methods. In particular, we try to improve convergence rate of the ill-conditioned linear systems formulated by the electric-field integral equation, which is the only integral-equation formulation for targets having open surfaces. For moderate-size problems, iterative solution of the neat-field system enables much faster convergence compared to the widely used sparse approximate inverse preconditioner. For larg...

Karaosmanoglu, Bariscan; Altinoklu, Askin; Ergül, Özgür Salih (EMW Publishing, 2016-01-01)
We present a new approach based on numerical constructions of testing functions for improving the accuracy of the magnetic-field integral equation (MFIE) and the combined-field integral equation (CFIE) with low-order discretizations. Considering numerical solutions, testing functions are designed by enforcing the compatibility of the MFIE systems with the accurate coefficients obtained by solving the electric-field integral equation (EFIE). We demonstrate the accuracy improvements on scattering problems, wh...

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...
Analysis of double-negative materials with surface integral equations and the multilevel fast multipole algorithm
Ergül, Özgür Salih (2011-08-13)
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...
