Abstract

This work investigates an adaptive, parallel and scalable integral equation solver for very large-scale electromagnetic modeling and simulation. A complicated surface model is decomposed into a collection of components, all of which are discretized independently and concurrently using a discontinuous Galerkin boundary element method. An additive Schwarz domain decomposition method is proposed next for the efficient and robust solution of linear systems resulting from discontinuous Galerkin discretizations. The work leads to a rapidly-convergent integral equation solver that is scalable for large multi-scale objects. Furthermore, it serves as a basis for parallel and scalable computational algorithms to reduce the time complexity via advanced distributed computing systems. Numerical experiments are performed on large computer clusters to characterize the performance of the proposed method. Finally, the capability and benefits of the resulting algorithms are exploited and illustrated through different types of real-world applications on high performance computing systems.
