Multilevel Fast Multipole Algorithm for Analysis of Large-Scale Microstrip Structures

Feng Ling, Jiming Song, Jian Ming Jin

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


An efficient algorithm combining multilevel fast multipole method and the discrete complex image method is presented for analyzing large-scale microstrip structures. The resulting algorithm has the memory requirement and the CPU time per iteration proportional to O(N log N); where N denotes the number of unknowns. Numerical results for microstrip antennas are presented to demonstrate the efficiency and accuracy of this method.
