MWSW01 - Canonical scattering problems We study the two dimensional problem of diffraction of a time-harmonic plane wave incident on a right-angled no-contrast penetrable wedge by using a two-complex-variables approach. The idea behind our work dates back to 1964 when J. Radlow discovered a two-complex-variable Wiener-Hopf type equation for this problem. After outlining these historical aspects, we explain how successive applications of the classical, one-complex-variable, Wiener-Hopf technique leads to two novel equations which control the Wiener-Hopf equation’s unknown spectral functions’ behaviour, but do not yet allow for solving the problem [1]. Thereafter, we discuss the analyticity properties of the two-complex-variables spectral functions. The singularities of the spectral functions are unveiled and their local behaviour in the vicinity of the singular set is discussed, as presented in [2]. Finally, we briefly outline how we plan to combine this with the machinery developed by R. Assier, A. Shanin, and A. Korolkov to recover the far-field asymptotics of the physical problem, including a description of the diffracted and lateral waves. [1] V. Kunz and R.
