Improve EM simulation efforts fast with this applications-focused resource. Bridging the gap between abstract academic treatments and the real-world needs of engineers, this timely work introduces various surface integral equation formulations, approaches to discretizing the integral equations, and measures of solution accuracy. It gives you numerical methods for 2D radiation and scattering problems, emphasizing concrete solution error bounds with exactly given constants. Moreover, the book provides techniques for higher order basis functions and 3D problems, focusing on smooth scatterers and edge singularity effects.
