While considerable progress has been made in the realm of speed-enhanced electromagnetic (EM) solvers, these fast solvers generally achieve their results through methods that introduce additional error components by way of geometric type approximations, sparse-matrix type approximations, multilevel type decomposition of interactions, and assumptions regarding the stochastic nature of EM problems. This work introduces the O(N logN) Uni ed-FFT grid totalizing (UFFT-GT) method, a derivative of method of moments (MoM), which achieves fast analysis with minimal to zero reduction in accuracy relative to direct MoM solution. The method uniquely combines FFT-enhanced Matrix Fill Operations (MFO) that are calculated to machine precision with FFT-enhanced Matrix Solve Operations (MSO) that are also calculated to machine precision, for an expedient solution that does not compromise accuracy.
