In this paper, we present a judicious combination of two renowned surface integral equation (SIE)-based techniques, namely, the multilevel fast multipole algorithm (MLFMA) and the method of moments (MoM), which synergize into a hybrid method that allows to address the analysis of large densely packed particle assemblies in an efficient and accurate way. This hybridization takes advantage of the repetition pattern inherent to these kinds of structures. Basically, the repeated self-coupling problems are squarely solved throughout the factorization of their MoM impedance matrix, whereas the cross-couplings through the surrounding medium are expedited via the MLFMA in the framework of a global iterative scheme. Some results are presented here to demonstrate the suitability of the proposed hybrid method to address large-scale nanoparticle arrays in the framework of nanoplasmonic biosensing applications.
