GENERALIZED COMBINED FIELD INTEGRAL EQUATIONS FOR THE ITERATIVE SOLUTION OF THE HELMHOLTZ EQUATION IN
 

Summary: GENERALIZED COMBINED FIELD INTEGRAL EQUATIONS FOR
THE ITERATIVE SOLUTION OF THE HELMHOLTZ EQUATION IN
THREE DIMENSIONS
XAVIER ANTOINE AND MARION DARBAS
Abstract. This paper addresses the derivation of new second-kind Fredholm combined field
integral equations for the Krylov iterative solution of acoustic scattering problems. These inte-
gral equations need the introduction of suitable tangential square-root operators to regularize the
formulations. Existence and uniqueness occur for these formulations. They can be interpreted as
generalizations of the well-known Brakhage-Werner [A. Brakhage and P. Werner, ¨Uber das Dirich-
letsche aussenraumproblem f¨ur die Helmholtzsche schwingungsgleichung, Arch. Math. 16 (1965),
pp. 325-329] and Combined Field Integral Equations (CFIE) [R.F. Harrington and J.R. Mautz,
H-field, E-field and combined field solution for conducting bodies of revolution, Arch. Elektron.
¨Ubertragungstech (AE¨U), 32 (4) (1978), pp. 157-164]. Finally, two- and three-dimensional numeri-
cal experiments are performed to test their efficiency.
Key words. Acoustic and electromagnetic scattering, Helmholtz equation, second-kind Fred-

1. Introduction. Integral equations are widely used in modern acoustic and
electromagnetic scattering codes for solving large scale problems in the high-frequency
regime [22]. These developments have been strongly influenced by the introduction
