Abstract : At the outset of this contract, the focus of attention was the fast multipole method (FMM) for the Maxwell equations. The FMM essentially provides for a fast and accurate computation of "non-near" (in a sense made precise in fields of specified currents. The problem of efficient and accurate computation of near field effects was as challenging and needy of study as the FMM. By the time the contract was completed, we had made significant and fundamental progress on both fronts.
