Iso-geometric Integral Equation Solvers and their Compression via Manifold Harmonics

by   A. M. A. Alsnayyan, et al.

The state of art of electromagnetic integral equations has seen significant growth over the past few decades, overcoming some of the fundamental bottlenecks: computational complexity, low frequency and dense discretization breakdown, preconditioning, and so on. Likewise, the community has seen extensive investment in development of methods for higher order analysis, in both geometry and physics. Unfortunately, these standard geometric descriptors are C^0 at the boundary between patches with a few exceptions; as a result, one needs to define additional mathematical infrastructure to define physical basis sets for vector problems. In stark contrast, the geometric representation used for design is higher-order differentiable over the entire surface. Geometric descriptions that have C^2-continuity almost everywhere on the surfaces are common in computer graphics. Using these description for analysis opens the door to several possibilities, and is the area we explore in this paper. Our focus is on Loop subdivision based isogeometric methods. In this paper, our goals are two fold: (i) development of computational infrastructure necessary to effect efficient methods for isogeometric analysis of electrically large simply connected objects, and (ii) to introduce the notion of manifold harmonics transforms and its utility in computational electromagnetics. Several results highlighting the efficacy of these two methods are presented.
