Scattering problems in periodic waveguides are interesting but challenging topics in mathematics, both theoretically and numerically. Due to the existence of eigenvalue, the unique solvability of such problems is not always guaranteed. To obtain a unique solution that is physically meaningful, the limiting absorption principle (LAP) is a commenly used method. LAP assumes that the limit of a family of solutions of scattering problems with absorbing material converges, as the absorbing parameter…

New numerical methods for scattering problems in periodic waveguides are proposed and based on the Limiting Absorption Principle, which does not need the LAP process during numerical approximations, thus a standard error estimation is easily carried out.



A Floquet-Bloch Transform Based Numerical Method for Scattering from Locally Perturbed Periodic Surfaces

A new numerical method is introduced and analyzed to simulate scattering from locally perturbed periodic structures based on the Bloch transform to give convergence analysis and error bounds for a Galerkin discretizatio...

A radiation condition arising from the limiting absorption principle for a closed full‐ or half‐waveguide problem

A small absorption is introduced to regularize the problem of an elliptic boundary value problem in a semi-infinite, straight waveguide containing a periodic material distribution and it is proved that the solutions converge locally in $H^1$.

Evaluation of scattering operators for semi-infinite periodic arrays

Periodic arrays are structures consisting of geometrically identical subdomains, usually named periodic cells. In this paper, by taking the Helmholtz equation as a model, we consider the definition

Variational Approach in Weighted Sobolev Spaces to Scattering by Unbounded Rough Surfaces

Well-posedness of this variational formulation in an energy space with weights is proved, which extends previous results in the unweighted setting to more general inhomogeneous terms in the Helmholtz equation.
