This paintings provides the Clifford-Cauchy-Dirac (CCD) process for fixing difficulties concerning the scattering of electromagnetic radiation from fabrics of all kinds.
It permits a person who's to grasp options that bring about easier and extra effective options to difficulties of electromagnetic scattering than are presently in use. The procedure is formulated when it comes to the Cauchy kernel, unmarried integrals, Clifford algebra and a whole-field strategy. this can be not like many traditional strategies which are formulated by way of Green's features, double integrals, vector calculus and the mixed box imperative equation (CFIE). while those traditional thoughts result in an implementation utilizing the strategy of moments (MoM), the CCD method is carried out as alternating projections onto convex units in a Banach space.
The final consequence is an vital formula that lends itself to a extra direct and effective answer than conventionally is the case, and applies with no exception to all kinds of fabrics. On any specific desktop, it leads to both a swifter resolution for a given challenge or the facility to unravel difficulties of larger complexity. The Clifford-Cauchy-Dirac strategy deals very genuine and important merits in uniformity, complexity, pace, garage, balance, consistency and accuracy.
