Abstract

We present a parallel implementation of the multilevel fast multipole algorithm (MLFMA) for fast and accurate solutions of electromagnetics problems involving homogeneous objects with diverse material properties. Problems are formulated rigorously with the electric and magnetic current combined-field integral equation (JMCFIE) and solved iteratively using MLFMA parallelized with the hierarchical partitioning strategy. Accuracy and efficiency of the resulting implementation are demonstrated on canonical problems involving perfectly conducting, lossless dielectric, lossy dielectric, and double-negative spheres
