Abstract

We present a set of benchmark problems involving conducting spheres and their solutions using a parallel implementation of the multilevel fast multipole algorithm (MLFMA). Accuracy of the implementation is tested by comparing the computational results with analytical Mie-series solutions. Reference solutions are made available on an interactive website to evaluate and compare the accuracy and efficiency of fast solvers. We also demonstrate the capabilities of our solver on real-life problems involving complicated targets, such as the Flamme.
