Fourier-based schemes with modified Green operator for computing the
electrical response of heterogeneous media with accurate local fields

François Willot, Bassam Abdallah, Yves-Patrick Pellegrini
A modified Green operator is proposed as an improvement of Fourier-based numerical schemes commonly used for computing the electrical or thermal response of heterogeneous media. Contrary to other methods, the number of iterations necessary to achieve convergence tends to a finite value when the contrast of properties between the phases becomes infinite. Furthermore, it is shown that the method produces much more accurate local fields inside highly-conducting and quasi-insulating phases, as well as in the vicinity of the phases interfaces. These good properties stem from the discretization of Green's function, which is consistent with the pixel grid while retaining the local nature of the operator that acts on the polarization field. Finally, a fast implementation of the "direct scheme" of Moulinec et al. (1994) that allows for parcimonious memory use is proposed.
