This paper introduces a novel boundary integral equation (BIE) method for the numerical solution of problems of planewave scattering by periodic line arrays of two-dimensional penetrable obstacles. Our approach is built upon a direct BIE formulation that leverages the simplicity of the free-space Green function but in turn entails evaluation of integrals over the unit-cell boundaries. Such integrals are here treated via the window Green function method. The windowing approximation together with…

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.

Windowed Green function method for the Helmholtz equation in the presence of multiply layered media

The proposed windowed Green function approach efficiently evaluates oscillatory integrals over unbounded domains, with high accuracy, without recourse to the highly expensive Sommerfeld integrals that have typically been used to account for the effect of underlying planar multilayer structures.

A new integral representation for quasi-periodic scattering problems in two dimensions

Boundary integral equations are an important class of methods for acoustic and electromagnetic scattering from periodic arrays of obstacles. For piecewise homogeneous materials, they discretize the

Wave-Scattering by Periodic Media

The methods developed in this thesis can be used to "upgrade" classical approaches, resulting in algorithms that are applicable throughout the spectrum, and it provides new methods for cases where previous approaches are either costly or fail altogether.

Rapidly convergent quasi-periodic Green functions for scattering by arrays of cylinders—including Wood anomalies

A full-spectrum Green-function methodology for evaluation of scattering by periodic arrays of cylinders of arbitrary cross section—with application to wire gratings, particle arrays and reflectarrays and, indeed, general arrays of conducting or dielectric bounded obstacles under both transverse electric and transverse magnetic polarized illumination.

A non-overlapping domain decomposition method (DDM) for the solution of quasi-periodic scalar transmission problems in layered media based on robust boundary-integral equation formulations of Robin-to-Robin (RtR) maps throughout the frequency spectrum, including at Wood frequencies.

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
