Recent contributions showed the benefits of operator filtering for both preconditioning and fast solution strategies. While previous contributions leveraged laplacian-based filters, in this work we introduce and study a different approach leveraging the truncation of appropriately chosen spectral representations of operators' kernels. In this contr...

Quasi-Helmholtz decompositions are fundamental tools in integral equation modeling of electromagnetic problems because of their ability of rescaling solenoidal and non-solenoidal components of solutions, operator matrices, and radiated fields. These tools are however incapable,

This paper focuses on fast direct solvers for integral equations in the low-to-moderate-frequency regime obtained by leveraging preconditioned first kind or second kind operators regularized with Laplacian filters. The spectral errors arising from boundary element discretizations are properly handled by filtering that, in addition, allows for the u...

In this paper we present a new regularized electric flux volume integral equation (D-VIE) for modeling high-contrast conductive dielectric objects in a broad frequency range. This new formulation is particularly suitable for modeling biological tissues at low frequencies, as it is required by brain epileptogenic area imaging, but also at higher one...

This work presents a fast direct solver strategy for electromagnetic integral equations in the high-frequency regime. The new scheme relies on a suitably preconditioned combined field formulation and results in a single skeleton form plus identity equation. This is obtained after a regularization of the elliptic spectrum through the extraction of a...

This paper extends the concept of Laplacian filtered quasi-Helmholtz decompositions we have recently introduced, to the basis-free projector-based setting. This extension allows the discrete analyses of electromagnetic integral operators spectra without passing via an explicit Loop-Star decomposition as previously done. We also present a fast schem...

Despite its several qualities, the Poggio-Miller-Chang-Harrington-Wu-Tsai (PMCHWT) formulation for simulating scattering by dielectric media suffers from numerical instabilities and severe ill-conditioning at low frequencies. While this drawback has been the object of numerous solution attempts in the standard low-frequency breakdown regime for sca...

The surface Boundary Element Method (BEM) is one of the most commonly employed formulations to solve the forward problem in electroencephalography, but the applicability of its classical incarnations is lamentably limited to piece-wise homogeneous media. Several head tissues, however, are strongly anisotropic due to their complex underlying micro-s...

The Electric Field Integral Equation (EFIE) is notorious for its ill-conditioning both in frequency and h-refinement. Several techniques exist for fixing the equation conditioning problems based on hierarchical strategies, Calderon techniques, and related technologies. This work leverages on a new approach, based on the construction of tailored spe...

Solving the electroencephalography (EEG) forward problem is a fundamental step in a wide range of applications including biomedical imaging techniques based on inverse source localization. State-of-the-art electromagnetic solvers resort to a computationally expensive volumetric discretization of the full head to account for its complex and heteroge...

Eddy currents are central to several industrial applications and there is a strong need for their efficient modeling. Existing eddy current solution strategies are based on a quasi-static approximation of Maxwell's equations for lossy conducting objects and thus their applicability is restricted to low frequencies. On the other hand, available full...

Source localization based on electroencephalography (EEG) has become a widely used neuroimaging technique. However its precision has been shown to be very dependent on how accurately the brain, head and scalp can be electrically modeled within the so-called forward problem. The construction of this model is traditionally performed by leveraging Fin...

The quantum behavior of charge carriers in semiconductor structures is often described in terms of the effective mass Schr\"{o}dinger equation, neglecting the rapid fluctuations of the wave function on the scale of the atomic lattice. For systems with piecewise-constant mass and potential energy, this amounts to solving a set of Helmholtz equations...

The electroencephalography (EEG) forward problem, the computation of the electric potential generated by a known electric current source configuration in the brain, is a key step of EEG source analysis. In this problem, it is often desired to model the anisotropic conductivity profiles of the skull and of the white matter. These profiles, however,...

The symmetric formulation of the electroencephalography (EEG) forward problem is a well-known and widespread equation thanks to the high level of accuracy that it delivers. However, this equation is first kind in nature and gives rise to ill-conditioned problems when the discretization density or the brain conductivity contrast increases, resulting...

In this paper we present a new discretization strategy for the boundary element formulation of the Electroencephalography (EEG) forward problem. Boundary integral formulations, classically solved with the Boundary Element Method (BEM), are widely used in high resolution EEG imaging because of their recognized advantages in several real case scenari...

This work presents two new volume integral equations for the Electroencephalography (EEG) forward problem which, differently from the standard integral approaches in the domain, can handle heterogeneities and anisotropies of the head/brain conductivity profiles. The new formulations translate to the quasi-static regime some volume integral equation...

In this paper, a novel volume integral equation for solving the Electroencephalography forward problem is presented. Differently from other integral equation methods standardly used for the same purpose, the new formulation can handle inhomogeneous and fully anisotropic realistic head models. The new equation is obtained by a suitable use of Green'...

This work presents a new discretization scheme for the integral equation based Electroencephalography direct problem. The scheme is based on mixed discretizations and presents level of accuracy that are higher than those obtained with currently available formulations. The discretization scheme is conforming with respect to the Sobolev space mapping...
