Abstract : In this thesis, we provide complexity reduction techniques for the solution of Boundary Integral Equations (BIE). In particular, we focus on BIE arising from the modeling of acoustic and electromagnetic problems via Boundary Element Methods (BEM). We use the local multi-trace formulation which is friendly to operator preconditioning. We find a closed form inverse of the local multi-trace operator for a model problem and then we propose this inverse operator for preconditioning general scattering problems. Moreover, we show that the local multi-trace formulation is stable for Maxwell equations posed on a particular domain configuration. For general problems where BEM are applied, we propose to use the framework of hierarchical matrices, which are constructed using cluster trees and allow to represent the original matrix in such a way that submatrices that admit low-rank approximations (admissible blocks) are well identified. We introduce a technique called geometric sampling which uses cluster trees to create accurate linear-time CUR algorithms for the compression and matrix-vector product acceleration of admissible matrix blocks, and which are oriented to develop parallel communication-avoiding algorithms.
