This paper presents the construction, use, and properties of a Multi-Resolution (wavelet) basis for the Method of Moments (MoM) analysis of metal antennas, scatterers, and microwave circuits discretized by triangular meshes. Several application examples show fast convergence of iterative solvers and accurate solutions with highly sparse MoM matrices. The proposed basis is organized in hierarchical levels, and keeps the different scales of the problem directly into the basis functions representation; the current is divided into a solenoidal and a quasi-irrotational part, which allows mapping these two vector parts onto fully scalar quantities, where the wavelets are defined. As a byproduct, this paper also presents a way to construct hierarchical sets of Rao-Wilton-Glisson (RWG) functions on a family of meshes obtained by subsequent refinement, i.e. with the RWG of coarser meshes expressed as linear combinations of those of finer meshes.
