This article presents a second-kind surface integral equation (SIE) method for the numerical solution of frequency-domain electromagnetic (EM) scattering problems by locally perturbed layered media in three spatial dimensions. Unlike standard approaches, the proposed methodology does not involve the use of layer Green functions (LGFs). It instead leverages an indirect Müller formulation in terms of free-space Green functions that entails integration over the entire unbounded penetrable boundary…

Windowed Green Function Method for Layered-Media Scattering

The WGF method, which is based on the use of smooth windowing functions and integral kernels that can be expressed directly in terms of the free-space Green function, does not require evaluation of expensive Sommerfeld integrals.

Convolution quadrature methods for time-domain scattering from unbounded penetrable interfaces

A high-order Nyström method based on Alpert's quadrature rules is used here, and a variety of CQ schemes and numerical examples, including wave propagation in open waveguides as well as scattering from multiple layered media, demonstrate the capabilities of the proposed approach.

Windowed Green function method for the Helmholtz equation in the presence of multiply layered media

The proposed windowed Green function approach efficiently evaluates oscillatory integrals over unbounded domains, with high accuracy, without recourse to the highly expensive Sommerfeld integrals that have typically been used to account for the effect of underlying planar multilayer structures.
