Purpose - The purpose of this paper is to compare competing adaptive strategies for fast frequency sweeps for driven and waveguide-mode problems and give recommendations for practical implementations. Design/methodology/approach - The paper first summarizes the theory of adaptive strategies for multi-point (MP) sweeps and then evaluates the efficiency of such methods by means of numerical examples. Findings - The authors' numerical tests give clear evidence for exponential convergence. In the driven case, highly resonant structures lead to pronounced pre-asymptotic regions, followed by almost immediate convergence. Bisection and greedy point-placement methods behave similarly. Incremental indicators are trivial to implement and perform similarly well as residual-based methods. Research limitations/implications - While the underlying reduction methods can be extended to any kind of affine parameter-dependence, the numerical tests of this paper are for polynomial parameter-dependence only. Practical implications - The present paper describes self-adaptive point-placement methods and termination criteria to make MP frequency sweeps more efficient and fully automatic. Originality/value - The paper provides a self-adaptive strategy that is efficient and easy to implement. Moreover, it demonstrates that exponential convergence rates can be reached in practice.
