The Fast Multipole Method
Professor Le-Xing Ying
Department of Mathematics, Stanford University, USA

The fast multipole method (FMM) is a numerical algorithm for efficiently evaluating the pairwise interaction between a large number of particles. It was introduced by Greengard and Rokhlin and ranked as one of the top ten algorithms of the 20th century. This talk will give a rather geometric introduction to the essential ideas of the FMM and explain some recent work in developing directional fast multipole methods for oscillatory kernels.
