Harmonic linear wave equations in exterior domains may model the scattering and propagation of pressure waves, electromagnetic waves or elastodynamic waves. They lead to a large fields of application, including radar cross section calculations.
Using the out-going fundamental solution, integral equations reduce the exterior problem to a problem posed on the boundary of the scattering obstacle. After discretisation one obtains a complex matrix which is classically directly inverted.
In this lecture, the speaker will introduce a "natural" quadratic function that reaches its minimum in the space of all out-going and in-going solutions at the solution of the model exterior problem. Eliminating the singularities, a new mixed real integral system results. The discrete problem is solved using standard iterative algorithms such a the real conjugate gradient method and the Jacobi algorithm.
