The boundary element method has become a popular tool for the solution of Maxwell’s equations in electromagnetism. From a linear algebra point of view, this leads to the solution of large dense complex linear systems where the unknowns are associated with the edges of the mesh defined on the surface of the illuminated object. In this paper, we address the iterative solution of these linear systems via preconditioned Krylov solvers. Our primary focus is on the design of an efficient… CONTINUE READING
