Abstract

A novel implementation of the equivalence principle algorithm (EPA) employing potential integral equations (PIEs) is presented. EPA is generalized to be compatible with PIEs that are used to formulate inner problems inside equivalence surfaces. Based on the stability of PIEs, the resulting EPA-PIE implementation is suitable for low-frequency problems involving dense discretizations with respect to wavelength. Along with the formulation and a clear demonstration of the EPA-PIE mechanism, high accuracy, stability, and efficiency of the implementation are presented on canonical problems.
