A Super-Algebraically Convergent, Windowing-Based Approach to the Evaluation of Scattering from Periodic Rough Surfaces

  title={A Super-Algebraically Convergent, Windowing-Based Approach to the Evaluation of Scattering from Periodic Rough Surfaces},
  author={John A. Monro},
We introduce a new second-kind integral equation method to solve direct rough surface scattering problems in two dimensions. This approach is based, in part, upon the bounded obstacle scattering method that was originally presented in Bruno et al. [2004] and is discussed in an appendix of this thesis. We restrict our attention to problems in which time-harmonic acoustic or electromagnetic plane waves scatter from rough surfaces that are perfectly reflecting, periodic and at least twice…

Three-dimensional quasi-periodic shifted Green function throughout the spectrum, including Wood anomalies

This work presents an efficient method for evaluation of wave scattering by doubly periodic diffraction gratings at or near what are commonly called ‘Wood anomaly frequencies’ and establishes, for the first time, that the Dirichlet problem of scattering by a smooth doubly Periodic scattering surface at a Wood frequency is uniquely solvable.

Windowed Green Function Method for Layered-Media Scattering

The WGF method, which is based on the use of smooth windowing functions and integral kernels that can be expressed directly in terms of the free-space Green function, does not require evaluation of expensive Sommerfeld integrals.

The present algorithm can evaluate accurately, on a personal computer, scattering from bodies of acoustical sizes of several hundreds and exhibits super–algebraic convergence, and it does not suffer from accuracy breakdowns of any kind.
