Multi-level fast multipole method for large surface and subsurface targets

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


The multi-level fast multiple algorithm (MLFMA) is applied to the problem of scattering from surface and subsurface targets. In this paper we demonstrate how the MLFMA is modified to handle the half-space problem, and present example results for several scattering problems of interest. In particular, we present results for scattering from buried unexploded ordnance (UXO).
