The fast multipole method is one of the most important algorithms
in computing developed in the 20th century. Along with the fast
multipole method, the boundary element method (BEM) has also
emerged, as a powerful method for modeling large-scale problems.
BEM models with millions of unknowns on the boundary can now be
solved on desktop computers using the fast multipole BEM. This is
the first book on the fast multipole BEM, which brings together the... more...
