The numerical analysis of highly iterated Sierpinski microstrip patch antennas by method of moments (MoM) involves many tiny subdomain basis functions, resulting in a very large number of unknowns. The Sierpinski pre-fractal can be defined by an iterated function system (IFS). As a consequence, the geometry has a multilevel structure with many equal subdomains. This property, together with a multilevel matrix decomposition algorithm (MLMDA) implementation in which the MLMDA blocks are equal to the IFS generating shape, is used to reduce the computational cost of the frequency analysis of a Sierpinski based structure.
