A Hybridized Forward Backward Method Applied to Electromagnetic Wave Scattering Problems

  title={A Hybridized Forward Backward Method Applied to Electromagnetic Wave Scattering Problems},

This communication presents an improved forward backward technique for the solution of electromagnetic wave scattering problems. The forward backward method displays rapid convergence when the eigenvalues of the associated iteration matrix are small. Conversely when the eigenvalues are large it displays poorer convergence. The hybridized method presented in this communication helps to circumvent the poor convergence of the forward backward method in the latter case by introducing an optimally… CONTINUE READING
