Abstract

In this paper, the electromagnetic field scattered by several 2D scatterers of any shape is calculated rigorously from the boundary integral equations discretized by the method of moments with the point matching method and pulse basis functions. In addition, the resulting linear system is efficiently solved from the domain decomposition method named the characteristic basis function method. To accelerate the computation of the primary basis functions, which requires solving sublinear systems, the Kirchoff approximation is applied for metallic and dielectric objects. The efficiency of the method is tested on several applications met in practice: stack of rough interfaces separating homogeneous media, collection of metallic and dielectric elliptical cylinders, collection of coated elliptical cylinders, and a combination of the previous scenarios.
