Title: A Discontinuous Galerkin Augmented Electric Field Integral Equation for Multiscale Electromagnetic Scattering Problems
Authors: Yibei Hou;Gaobiao Xiao;Xuezhe Tian
Year: 2017
Publisher: IEEE
Abstract: A discontinuous Galerkin (DG) augmented electric field integral equation method based on the domain decomposition is proposed in this paper for full-wave solution of multiscale targets. The conventional surface integral equation-based DG method allowing both conformal and nonconformal discretizations for multiscale structures suffers from low-frequency breakdown. By augmenting the DG-EFIE with current continuity equation, the proposed scheme can alleviate the low-frequency breakdown. In the augmented system, the electric field integral equation and the current continuity equation are discretized by using hybrid basis functions including Rao-Wilton-Glisson (RWG) and half RWG basis functions. Since the half RWG basis is not divergence conforming, line charge degrees of freedom on the adjoining edges are introduced in this paper. It is observed that the resulting linear system is well conditioned at low frequencies, which leads to a rapid convergence over wide frequency band. Numerical examples demonstrate the accuracy and efficiency of the augmented system.
