Summary
This paper addresses the first step of the derivation of well-conditioned integral formulations for
the iterative solution of exterior acoustic boundary-value problems. These new formulations are
designed to be implemented in a fast multipole method coupled to a Krylov subspace iterative
algorithm. Their construction is based on the on-surface radiation condition formalism. Both
theoretical developments and numerical aspects are examined in detail. This approach can be
viewed as a generalization of the usual Burton­Miller integral equations.
1. Introduction
A very popular method for solving the acoustic scattering problem of a time-harmonic wave in an
unbounded domain is provided by the integral equation method (1 to 3). Even if other efficient
