## Abstract

In this work, we combine conventional boundary element method (BEM) with the reduced-basis method (RBM) and propose a reduced-basis boundary element method (RB-BEM) to realize efficient modeling for parameterized electromagnetic scattering problems of dielectric scatterers. The RB-BEM allows for splitting the modeling process into a parameter-independent offline part and parameter-dependent online part, and replacing the high-dimensional original model obtained by conventional BEM with a low-dimensional reduced-basis model to improve computational efficiency of the online part. We also propose an improved greedy algorithm based on multi-grid to improve the computational efficiency of the offline part. The numerical experiments indicate that the efficiency of the improved greedy algorithm is several times higher than that of the standard one, and the solving efficiency of the reduced-basis model is several times to dozens of times higher than that of the original model with a prescribed approximation accuracy.
