The Method of Moments for electromagnetic scattering and radiation problems is often used in conjunction with the EFIE because the EFIE allows the analysis of open surfaces. For electrically large closed surfaces, the CFIE is often much more efficient because it yields a well conditioned impedance matrix. This is particularly important when an iterative solution method is used. This paper compares the EFIE and the CFIE for a novel fast direct (non-iterative) solution method, the Multiscale Compressed Block Decomposition method.
