Time-Harmonic Scattering Problems

Abstract-- We present a procedure to gain significant accu-
racy in the finite element solution of electromagnetic scattering
problems at high wavenumbers. The technique relies on the
determination at a low computational cost of an approximate
solution around the scattering obstacle, which is then used to
formulate a alternate variational formulation in terms of a slowly-
oscillatory amplitude. Contrary to competing approaches, the
proposed method does not require any new finite element basis
functions, and can thus be easily implemented in existing finite
element codes.
