In this paper, we consider efficient parallelization of the sparse approximate inverse (SAI) preconditioner in the context of the multilevel fast multipole algorithm (MLFMA). Then, we report the use of SAI in the solution of very large EFIE problems. The SAI preconditioner is important not only because it is a robust preconditioner that renders many difficult and large problems solvable, but also it can be utilized for the construction of more effective preconditioners.
