Boundaryresidual methods are extended to include threedimensional homogeneous field problems applicable to millimeterwave problems. Their connection to pointmatching methods is shown, and the reason why pointmatching fails and boundary residual methods do not is explained. A numerical example is used to demonstrate the validity of these methods. A discussion of the limitations of these methods is also included.
