This paper compares the hybrid FEM-BEM and FEM-DBCI methods for the solution of open-boundary electrostatic field problems. Both methods couple a differential equation for the interior problem with an integral equation for the exterior one. The comparison shows that FEM-BEM is more accurate than FEM-DBCI but requires more computing time.
