A new algorithm is proposed to solve the volume integral equation whereby the scatterer is first divided into N subscatterers. Smaller problems are nested within larger problems using the Huygens equivalence principle. The resultant algorithm has reduced computational complexity whose CPU time is proportional to N1.5. © 1993 John Wiley & sons, Inc.
