The Iterative Multi-Region Algorithm Using a Hybrid Finite Difference Frequency Domain and Method of Moment Techniques
By
, Vol. 57, 19-32, 2006
Abstract
This paper presents a hybrid technique, which combines the desirable features of two different numerical methods, finite difference frequency domain (FDFD) and the method of moments (MoM), to analyze large-scale electromagnetic problems. This is done by dividing the computational domain into smaller sub-regions and solving each sub-region using the appropriate numerical method. Once each sub-region is analyzed, independently, an iterative approach takes place to combine the sub-region solutions to obtain a solution for the complete domain. As a result, a considerable reduction in the computation time and required computer memory is achieved.
