We present a new error control method that provides the truncation numbers as well as the required digits of machine precision for the translation operator of the multilevel fast multipole algorithm (MLFMA). The proposed method is valid for all frequencies, whereas the previous studies on error control are valid only for high-frequency problems (i.e., electrically large translation distances). When combined with a multiple-precision implementation of MLFMA, the proposed method can be used to solve low-frequency problems that are problematic with a fixed-precision implementation. Numerical results in the form of optimal truncation numbers and machine precisions for a variety of box sizes and desired relative error thresholds are presented and compared with the methods or numerical surveys available in the literature.

We introduce and demonstrate a new error control scheme for the computation of far-zone interactions in the multilevel fast multipole algorithm when implemented within a multiple-precision arithmetic framework. The proposed scheme provides the optimum truncation numbers as well as the machine precisions given the desired relative error thresholds and the box sizes for the translation operator at all frequencies. In other words, unlike the previous error control schemes which are valid only for high-frequenc...

Using the hierarchical strategy for the parallelization, the developed implementation is capable of simul...

We present electromagnetic optimizations by heuristic algorithms supported by approximate forms of the multilevel fast multipole algorithm (MLFMA). Optimizations of complex structures, such as antennas, are performed by considering each trial as an electromagnetic problem that can be analyzed via MLFMA and its approximate forms. A dynamic accuracy control is utilized in order to increase the efficiency of optimizations. Specifically, in the proposed scheme, the accuracy is used as a parameter of the optimiz...
