We present a new algorithm for the numerical solution of problems of electromagnetic or acoustic scattering by large, convex obstacles. This algorithm combines the use of an ansatz for the unknown density in a boundary-integral formulation of the scattering problem with an extension of the ideas of the method of stationary phase. We include numerical(More)
We present a new method for construction of high-order parametrizations of surfaces: starting from point clouds, the method we propose can be used to produce full surface parametrizations (by sets of local charts, each one representing a large surface patch – which, typically, contains thousands of the points in the original point-cloud) for complex(More)
We consider the problem of evaluating the current distribution J(z) that is induced on a straight wire antenna by a time-harmonic incident electromagnetic field. The scope of this paper is twofold. One of its main contributions is a regularity proof for a straight wire occupying the interval [−1, 1]. In particular, for a smooth time-harmonic incident field(More)
The numerical solution of time-dependent ordinary and partial differential equations presents a number of well known difficulties—including, possibly, severe restrictions on time-step sizes for stability in explicit procedures, as well as need for solution of challenging, generally nonlinear systems of equations in implicit schemes. In this note we(More)
— In this paper we present a multiple-scattering solver for non-convex geometries such as those obtained as the union of a finite number of convex surfaces. For a prescribed error tolerance this algorithm exhibits a fixed computational cost for arbitrarily high frequencies. At the core of the method is an extension of the method of stationary phase,(More)
We present a new class of integral equations for the solution of problems of scattering of electromagnetic fields by perfectly conducting bodies. Like the classical Combined Field Integral Equation (CFIE), our formulation results from a representation of the scattered field as a combination of magnetic-and electric-dipole distributions on the surface of the(More)
