Abstract

The Method of Moments (MoM) is part of a general body of mathematical techniques whose goal is to solve an integral equation by converting it into a matrix equation, which can then be readily solved on a computer. The MoM is one of the most well-developed and used of all numerical techniques available in electromagnetic analysis, including EMI/EMC work. The MoM is very versatile; it can be highly efficient for metallic structures composed of wires and surfaces.
