AbstractThe Sherman-Morrison-Woodbury formula-based algorithm is used in this work to enhance the computational performance of the characteristic basis function method (CBFM) when applied in a context of 3D full-wave model to the scattering by complex-geometry precipitation particles. The improvement brought by this algorithm, particularly to the compression rate achieved by the CBFM, enables us to simulate electrically larger particles while maintaining a satisfactory level of accuracy and a reasonable computational cost.
