The MoM for Full-Wave Solutions

For general open-radiating problems for scatterers of arbitrary shape, a procedure similar to the solution of the charge on the straight wire is followed.

This procedure can be summarized as follows:
  1. Specify the relevant integral equation.
  2. Apply boundary conditions to manipulate the integral equations into a solvable form.
  3. Discretize the unknowns on the scatterer - in this section, we will work with currents.
  4. Test the integral equation to create the same number of equations as the number of unknowns.
  5. Solve the matrix equation to obtain current coefficients.
  6. Sum (integrate) the vector currents to obtain output such as far fields and impedance.
