In antennas and microwave applications, practical applicability of electromagnetic solvers still remains challenging in a variety of situations of definite industrial or scientific interest; typical large or otherwise complex array antennas, their beam forming networks (BFN), and many instances of MMIC structures are one of the most important such cases. It is to be observed that the scale of the numerical problem may arise from the overall electrical size of the structure under analysis (i.e. in terms of wavelengths) or be determined by the complicacy of its geometrical features. The epitomic example of electrically large structures is the radar cross section computation of large bodies like aircraft; MMIC or other circuits are a typical example of smaller structures with very fine details; full analysis of large array antennas, inter-antenna coupling in large satellites, and the prediction of antenna system performance on complex platforms exhibit a mixture of the two classes of problems.
