Abstract
In this contribution, we demonstrate that recent improvements in "fast methods" allow for fully error-controlled full-wave simulations of two-dimensional objects with sizes over a million wavelengths using relatively simple computing environments. We review how a fully scalable parallel version of the Multilevel Fast Multipole Algorithm (MLFMA) is obtained to accelerate a two-dimensional boundary integral equation for the scattering by multiple large dielectric and/or perfectly conducting objects. Several complex and large-scale examples demonstrate the capabilities of the algorithm. This implementation is available as open source under GPL license (http://www.openfmm.net).
