Abstract. We present a systematic approach to the computation of exact nonreflecting bound-
ary conditions for the wave equation. In both two and three dimensions, the critical step in our
analysis involves convolution with the inverse Laplace transform of the logarithmic derivative of a
Hankel function. The main technical result in this paper is that the logarithmic derivative of the Han-
kel function H
(1)
(z) of real order can be approximated in the upper half z-plane with relative error
by a rational function of degree d O(log || log 1

slightly more complicated bounds for = 0. If N is the number of points used in the discretization of
a cylindrical (circular) boundary in two dimensions, then, assuming that < 1/N, O(N log N log 1
