Abstract

A non-overlapping and non-conformal domain decomposition method (DDM) is presented for modeling large finite antenna arrays. Two major benefits of the proposed DDM: (a) A mixed true second order transmission condition (SOTC) with corner edge penalty terms is developed to facilitate fast convergence in the DDM iterations. Numerical experiments indicate that the convergence of DDM with the aforementioned SOTC is insensitive to the sizes of arrays; and, (b) The non-conformal property of the proposed DDM permits the use of completely independent discretization for each of the sub-domains. We demonstrate the performance of the proposed approach through several large-scale problems.
