  • We consider a variety of boundary value problems (BVPs) for the heterogeneous Helmholtz equation, i.e. the equation $\nabla\cdot(A \nabla u ) + k^2 n u =-f$ where both $A$ and $n$ are functions of position. We prove new a priori bounds on the solution under conditions on $A$, $n$, and the domain that ensure nontrapping of rays; the novelty is that these bounds are explicit in $k$, $A$, $n$, and geometric parameters of the domain. We then show that these a priori bounds hold when $A$ and $n$ are… CONTINUE READING
