Comparative study of acceleration techniques for integrals and series in electromagnetic problems
Most of the electromagnetic problems can be reduced down to either integrating oscillatory integrals or summing up complex series. However, limits of the integrals and the series usually extend to infinity. In addition, they may be slowly convergent. Therefore, numerically efficient techniques for evaluating the integrals or for calculating the sum of infinite series have to be used to make the numerical solution feasible and attractive. In the literature, there are a wide range of applications of such methods to various EM problems. In this paper, our main aim is to critically examine the popular series transformation (acceleration) methods which are used in electromagnetic problems and compare them by numerical examples.
