Dynamical Modeling for Electromagnetic Interactions with Deformable Objects

Artificial intelligence (AI) requires machines to have wisdoms which can be represented by their autonomy, just like what a normal adult in our human being possesses. Making machines have such wisdoms not only requires that the software be dynamically changed according to the changes of environments or situations, but also requires that the hardware be softwarelized, i.e., it can be changeable, reconfigurable, and programmable, in either geometries and/or materials. That is to say, all electronic devices and systems, which constitute the major parts of modern machines, will be changeable in the geometries and/or materials in the AI era, and this can be more and more realizable thanks to the rapid development of flexible electronic materials in recent years.

Electromagnetic (EM) analysis is a foundation for optimally designing modern electronic devices and systems. When the geometries and materials of the devices and systems are dynamically changeable, how can we make an accurate and efficient EM analysis for them? The dynamical modeling and simulation is then inevitable! EM problems are governed by the well-known Maxwell’s equations which can be changed into different forms. The original Maxwell’s equations take a partial differential equation form, but they can be changed into an integral equation form by introducing the Green’s function. Considering the changeable domains of analyzed targets or objects in the AI era, the integral equations will be more suitable for governing the problems because they only discretize the domains of targets. The primary solver for EM integral equations is the method of moments (MoM), but it strongly relies on the high-quality meshes of discretizing solution domains, and this is obviously a serious constraint. Aiming to the difficulty, we develop a robust meshless method in recent years, which can fully overcome or alleviate the problems in the traditional MoM and it could be very useful for the dynamical modeling and simulation for EM interactions with deformable objects. We will introduce the method in details and demonstrate its effectiveness and robustness for solving such EM problems by using numerical examples.
