A new method, the low-frequency fast inhomogeneous plane-wave algorithm (LF-FIPWA) is presented to extend the traditional multilevel fast multipole algorithm (MLFMA) and fast inhomogeneous plane-wave algorithm (FIPWA) seamlessly into the low-frequency range. It uses evanescent-wave extrapolation and translation techniques to overcome the low-frequency breakdown problem. The accuracy can be well controlled over a broad frequency range. Numerical examples show the effectiveness of this new algorithm.
