The intended audience includes electromagnetic engineers with some previous familiarity with numerical techniques. This paper presents an algebraic method of generating arbitrary-order basis functions suitable for use in moment methods. They are hierarchal, so that different orders can be used together in the same mesh and p-adaption is possible. These techniques are important for electromagnetic scattering, antenna, radar signature, and wireless communication applications. As a result, the nuances and challenges of solving this equation have been examined for a while.

These techniques are important for electromagnetic scattering, antenna, radar signature, and wireless communication applications. It is shown that these functions can be obtained as the product of zeroth-order Nedelec representations and interpolatory polynomials with specially arranged arrays of interpolation points. The good properties of these new vector elements are confirmed by numerical results. The system of equations from which the expansion coefficients are obtained is generated by applying a Galerkin-type weighted-residual method. The E-mail message field is required. Such integrals arise in evaluation of Galerkin matrix elements in method-of-moments analysis of antennas and scatterers in cases of coincident source and test elements. This presentation summarizes the development of various field and current approximations, and discusses principles guiding their development.

Curl-conforming basis functions on curvilinear cells -- 5. Special consideration is given to the treatment of edges so that rather arbitrary geometrical configurations may be handled.

Basis functions that are used to model surface electric current densities in the electric field integral equations of computational electromagnetics are analyzed with respect to how well they model the charge distribution, in addition to the current. A parametric geometric modelling method for solution of electromagnetic integral equations that employs piecewise Lagrange polynomials that use only partial interpolation nodes to fit the curved surfaces, other than higher-order Lagrange interpolation that involves all nodes, is proposed. We give some applications of these elements for the approximation of Maxwell's equations and equations of elasticity. These techniques are important for electromagnetic scattering, antenna, radar signature, and wireless communication applications.

With a systematic and unified review of generalized curved parametric quadrilateral, triangular, hexahedral, and tetrahedral elements and various types of higher order hierarchical and interpolatory vector basis functions, in both divergence- and curl-conforming arrangements, a large number of actual higher order techniques, representing various combinations of formulations, elements, bases, and solution procedures, are identified and discussed. Ideal far-field convergence rates are only observed when the model curvature is one degree higher than the basis order.

The goal of this paper is to develop an efficient and accurate computation scheme based on mixed-order curved moment method for computing scattering from complex targets. For the global interpolation operators to be well defined, we require a certain amount of regularity.

It has been implemented in the linear harmonic case and used in particular for studies on non-destructive testing. We demonstrate through computational example the benefits of using these new interpolatory bases in finite element solutions to Maxwell's equations in both the frequency and time domain. It is of very wide application in that to operate, only the definition of the 3-term recurrence relation for the orthogonal polynomials associated with the weight function need be supplied. Constraints on node distribution -- 2. Unlike interpolatory finite elements, hierarchal elements offer no straightforward way to approximate a given field.

Duffy's method, polar co-ordinate transformation, or by singularity extraction. Divergence-conforming constrained bases are presented for quadrilateral meshes for use in electric and magnetic field integral equations. These methods were extended into a multilevel context in the works of Vande Ginste et al. So, any geometry that involves quadrics or higher order surfaces can be considered. The procedure not only has several advantages over singularity subtraction methods, but also improves on some aspects of other singularity cancellation methods such as polar and Duffy transformations.

The modeling parameters considered are: electrical dimensions of elements h -refinement , polynomial orders of basis functions p-refinement , orders of Gauss-Legendre integration formulas integration accuracy , and geometrical curvature orders of elements in the model. The method is applied to the scattering problems of a plane wave illuminated flat square plate, bent square plate, circular disk, and sphere.

A novel higher order finite-element technique based on generalized curvilinear hexahedra with hierarchical curl-conforming polynomial vector basis functions is proposed for microwave modeling. In connection with a high order method of moments solution of integral equations for electromagnetic scattering, several approaches are investigated for representing current and charge densities in the vicinity of corners. It is found that for a spherical cavity it gives the proper results locating the modes as predicted analytically while for the cubical cavity, the Locally Corrected Nyström method gives some imprecision in the calculation of the modes despite using high order numerical quadrature, probably due to the presence of edges where derivatives of the basis vectors are not defined.

Hermitian mapping from square cells -- 2. In the reference domain, the spline complex can be visualised as in Figure 4. Higher-order hierarchical functions for triangular cells -- 4. Vector basis functions of the divergence-conforming and curl-conforming types are explained, and specific interpolatory and hierarchical basis functions are reviewed. In addition, a new set of hierarchical curl-conforming vector basis functions is proposed.

Treatment of the singularity of the Green's function -- 6. Assume Γ to be a single patch domain given via a geometry mapping F F F in accordance with Assumption 7. An improved Duffy method is presented in the higher order moment method. History of the use of curl-conforming basis functions -- 4. Series Title: Responsibility: Andrew F.

In contrast to existing formulations, these properties allow the use of very high-order basis functions without introducing ill-conditioning of the resulting MoM matrix. Higher-order interpolatory functions for triangular cells -- 3. Higher-order interpolatory functions for square cells -- 3. Numerical experiments are performed to show accuracy and efficiency of the presented computation scheme for complex targets. The worst case scenario for this growth rate is exponential and in this paper we demonstrate through computational example that the traditional set of uniformly distributed interpolation points yields this behavior.
