### Abstract

The calculation of the polarization charges using the induced charge computation (ICC) method was presented. A different solution was given for their extremum condition that produced a matrix formulation. The induced charges were calculated using a linear matrix equation Ah=c, where h contained the discretized induced charge density, c depended only on the source charges, and A depended on the geometry of dielectrics which was assumed to be unchanged during the simulation. The efficiency and accuracy of the method was also verified using Monte Carlo simulations for two special cases.
