Computational electromagnetics (CEM) is witnessing a drastically changing environment with the new generation of computer processors, which are multicore instead of single-core. The change in Central Processing Units (CPU) design represents something of a cataclysmic shift for Electromagnetic (EM) software. As a result, parallel CEM programming has suddenly become relevant for all computer systems. The burden now falls on the EM software designer to add new functionality to enable computational codes to run efficiently on this new generation of multicore processors or to revamp existing codes for that purpose.

HOBBIES, which is an acronym for Higher Order Basis Based Integral Equation Solver, is a high-performance both in-core and out-of-core parallel simulation software intended for fast and accurate analysis of a wide range of EM problems, especially for the solution of electrically large and complex problems. The unique features in HOBBIES can be classified into two classes: (1) use of the higher order basis based on the Method of Moments (MoM) in a frequency domain integral equation solver, and (2) the computer-related methodologies such as an out-of-core parallel processing methodology for efficient solution of large, dense complex matrix equations. This book on HOBBIES not only contains the theory but also has an academic version of the code with a maximum of 3000 nodes for generating the geometry and 5000 samples for the post-processing. It has a capability not only ...
