In many cases, boundary value problems on a domain Ω can be rewritten as integral equations on the boundary of Ω. The discretization of this integral equation leads to a system of linear equations with a dense coefficient matrix of dimension N. In this paper, we present a panel clustering algorithm which avoids the generation of the N2 matrix entries by representing the integral operator on the discrete level by only O(NlogκN) quantities. Thus, a matrix vector multiplication as a basis step in every iterative solver can be performed by O(NlogκN) operations. This method can be applied to all kinds of integral equations discretized by, e.g., the Nyström, the collocation or the Galerkin method.

## Abstract

In many cases, boundary value problems on a domain Ω can be rewritten as integral equations on the boundary of Ω. The discretization of this integral equation leads to a system of linear equations with a dense coefficient matrix of dimension N. In this paper, we present a panel clustering algorithm which avoids the generation of the N2 matrix entries by representing the integral operator on the discrete level by only O(NlogκN) quantities. Thus, a matrix vector multiplication as a basis step in every iterative solver can be performed by O(NlogκN) operations. This method can be applied to all kinds of integral equations discretized by, e.g., the Nyström, the collocation or the Galerkin method.

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.

You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
