It is known that the measured equation of invariance (MEI) is generally valid for outgoing waves just as other absorbing boundary conditions (ABCs). However, for the scattering problem of multicylinders, the scattered field from one cylinder is just the in-going incident wave to other cylinders. So the MEI cannot be directly applied to the scattering problem of multicylinders. In this paper, an iterative algorithm based on the MEI is first proposed for the scattering problems of multicylinders with arbitrary geometry and physical parameters. Each cylinder is coated with several layers of meshes and the MEIs are applied to the truncated mesh boundaries. It has been demonstrated that the MEI can truncate the meshes very close to the surfaces of the cylinders and then results in dramatically savings in memory requirements and computational time. The MEI coefficients of each cylinder can be stored and reused to form the sparse matrices during each iteration procedure as they are independent of excitations. So more central processing unit (CPU) time is saved as the MEI coefficients are calculated only once in the algorithm. The method can be applied to problems of various kinds of multiple cylinders with arbitrary configurations and cross sections. Numerical results for the scattered fields are in good agreement with the data available. Finally, examples are given to show the iterative algorithm applicable to electrically large multicylinders coated with lossy media
