If you have a question about this talk, please contact Sergey Sergeev. In this talk, I will give an introduction to operator preconditioning as a general and robust strategy to precondition linear systems arising from Galerkin discretization of PDEs or boundary integral equations. Then, in order to illustrate the applicability of this preconditioning technique, I will discuss the simple case of weakly singular and hypersingular integral equations, arising from exterior Dirichlet and Neumann BVPs for the Laplacian in 3D. Finally, I will show how we can also tackle operators with a more difficult structure, like the electric field integral equation (EFIE) on screens, which models the scattering of time-harmonic electromagnetic waves at perfectly conducting bounded infinitely thin objects, like patch antennas in 3D.
