We review a set of algorithms and methodologies developed recently for the numerical solution of problems of scattering by complex bodies in three-dimensional space. These methods, which are based on integral equations, high-order integration, Fast Fourier Transforms and highly accurate high-frequency integrators, can be used in the solution of problems of electromagnetic and acoustic scattering by surfaces and penetrable scatterers — even in cases in which the scatterers contain geometric singularities such as comers and edges. All of the solvers presented here exhibit high-order convergence, they run on low memories and reduced operation counts, and they result in solutions with a high degree of accuracy. In particular, our approach to direct solution of integral equations results in algorithms that can evaluate accurately in a personal computer scattering from hundred-wavelength-long objects — a goal, otherwise achievable today only by super-computing. The high-order high-frequency methods we present, in turn, are efficient where our direct methods become costly, thus leading to an overall computational methodology which is applicable and accurate throughout the electromagnetic spectrum.
