Proposing a Wavelet Based Meshless Method for Simulation of Conducting Materials

This work focuses on the development of multiscale meshless technique in area of scattered fields from paramagnetic scatterers. The radial point interpolation method (RPIM), as the most common meshless technique, is employed for above purpose. Due to high frequency analysis, some special considerations must be applied, particularly in subdomains near the incident face. So, to ensure the accuracy, a multiscale meshless technique in wavelet frames sounds necessary. Simulating the scatterers using above method, specifically an elliptic paramagnetic scatterer, shows some efficient aspects such as less computational time and more precision compared with some other numerical methods.
