MWSW01 - Canonical scattering problems

The classical problem of diffraction of a scalar monochromatic wave by a Dirichlet thin quarter-plane screen in the 3D space is studied. As it is known, this problem admits separation of variables, but no analog of the Wiener-Hopf method for it has been built. In [1] we propose an approach enabling one to study the singularities of the solution of the problem a priori (i.e. without building the solution). The wave field becomes represented as a 2D Fourier integral whose transformant has an unknown regular part and an explicitly known singular part. Here we address a technical but important problem: we reconstruct the principal wave terms from the singularities of the Fourier transformant. As the basic technique, we use the method developed in [2]. We demonstrate that the locality principle is applicable to the integral: the principal wave terms are produced by the crossings of the singularity components or the saddle points on the singularity. After a careful analysis, we obtain that all components obtained this way correspond to certain rays. The work is co-authored by R.C.Assier and A.I.Korolkov.
