Abstract

We present a parallel implementation of the multilevel fast multipole algorithm (MLFMA) for fast and accurate solutions of large-scale electromagnetics problems involving composite objects with dielectric and metallic parts. Problems are formulated with the electric and magnetic current combined-field integral equation (JMCFIE) and solved iteratively with MLFMA on distributed-memory architectures. Numerical examples involving canonical and complicated objects, such as optical metamaterials, are presented to demonstrate the accuracy and efficiency of the implementation.
