Abstract : In this paper we propose linear-time CUR approximation algorithms for admissible matrices obtained from the hierarchical form of Boundary Element matrices. We propose a new approach called geometric sampling to obtain indices of most significant rows and columns using information from the domains where the problem is posed. Our strategy is tailored to Boundary Element Methods (BEM) since it uses directly and explicitly the cluster tree containing information from the problem geometry. Our CUR algorithm has precision comparable with low-rank approximations created with the truncated QR factorization with column pivoting (QRCP) and the Adaptive Cross Approximation (ACA) with full pivoting, which are quadratic-cost methods. When compared to the well-known linear-time algorithm ACA with partial pivoting, we show that our algorithm improves, in general, the convergence error and overcomes some cases where ACA fails. We provide a general relative error bound for CUR approximations created with geometrical sampling. Finally, we evaluate the performance of our algorithms on traditional BEM problems defined over different geometries.
