Abstract

Malvar wavelets are often referred to as smooth local cosine (SLC) functions. In this paper the SLC functions are employed as the basis and testing functions in the Galerkin-based Method of Moments (MoM) for the Pocklington equation of thin-wire antennas and scatterers. The SLC system has rapid convergence and is particularly suitable to handle electrically large scatterers, where the integral kernel behaves in a highly oscillatory manner. Numerical examples demonstrate the scattering ofelectromagnetic waves from a thin-wire scatterer as well as wave radiation from the gull-shaped antenna. A comparison ofthe new approach versus the traditional MoM is provided.
