Far-field results obtained by two different methods are compared for the problem of electromagnetic scattering from dielectric objects. The two methods are the surface integral formulation, utilizing equivalent electric and magnetic surface currents, and the volume formulation, utilizing the equivalent electric polarization current. Triangular patches are used in the surface formulation and cubical cells are used in the volume formulation. The far-scattered fields obtained by the two methods are in good agreement, thereby validating both the approaches for the analysis of scattering problems. Numerical problems associated with the fields in the source region are also addressed.
