This paper is concerned with the efficient implementation of transparent boundary condi-
tions (TBCs) for wide angle parabolic equations (WAPEs) assuming cylindrical symmetry.
In [1] a discrete TBC of convolution type was derived from the fully discretized whole­space
problem that is reflection­free and yields an unconditionally stable scheme. Since the dis-
crete TBC includes a convolution with respect to range with a weakly decaying kernel, its
numerical evaluation becomes very costly for long-range simulations.
As a remedy we construct new approximative transparent boundary conditions involving
exponential sums as an approximation to the convolution kernel. This special approxima-
tion enables us to use a fast evaluation of the convolution type boundary condition.
This new approach was outlined in detail in [2] for the standard "parabolic" equation.
