Abstract

We describe a way to combine the method of fictitious sources and the scattering-matrix method. The resulting method presents concurrently the advantages of these two rigorous methods. It is able to solve efficiently electromagnetic problems in which the structure is made up of a jacket containing an arbitrary set of scatterers. The method is described in a two-dimensional case, but the basic ideas could be easily extended to three-dimensional cases.
