A combination of a multiresolution (MR) preconditioner and matrix decomposition algorithm - singular value decomposition (MDA-SVD) algorithm is proposed for the analysis of densely discretised electromagnetic (EM) scatterers. In realistic EM scattering problems, the discretisation may be very dense to accurately describe the geometric shape of targets. However, dense discretisations will generate two major drawbacks: (i) the badly conditioned method of moments (MoM) matrix which makes iterative solvers difficult to converge; (ii) the dense near-field MoM matrix for which the computational cost is large, even multilevel fast multipole algorithm (MLFMA) is applied. To remedy the first shortcoming of dense discretisations, an MR preconditioner can be applied to improve the condition of MoM matrices. To reduce the computational cost in solving the MoM matrix equation, an MDA-SVD algorithm can be applied to accelerate the matrix-vector multiplication. Compared with the traditional MLFMA, the MDA-SVD algorithm has no limit on the size of octree boxes which makes the MDA-SVD algorithm suitable for the analysis of dense discretisations. Therefore an MR preconditioner is combined with the MDA-SVD algorithm for fast analysis of dense discretisations. Numerical results indicate that the combination of the MR preconditioner and the MDA-SVD algorithm is efficient.
