Abstract

We suggest a new approach to calculate the inverse matrix in scattering calculations using the T-matrix method. Instead of inversion of the full matrix, we suggest the inversion of two matrices, each of which contains half the number of rows. This approach allows significant time savings and a noticeable increase of the precision of scattering calculations due to fewer arithmetical operations. An iterative method can be applied to matrices whose dimension is also divisible by factors of 2, which can further increase the time savings and accuracy.
