Construction of the differential surface admittance operator with an extended Fokas method for electromagnetic scattering at polygonal objects with arbitrary material parameters
This article presents a novel method to accurately simulate electromagnetic scattering at homogeneous polygonal cylinders with arbitrary material properties. A
In this contribution, we propose a novel approach to rigorously model interconnect structures with an arbitrary convex polygonal cross-section and
