Factorization Method for Finite Fine Structures

By Seil S. Sautbekov
Progress In Electromagnetics Research B, Vol. 25, 1-21, 2010


This paper deals with the development of the Wiener-Hopf method for solving the diffraction of waves at fine strip-slotted structures. The classical problem for diffraction of plane wave at a strip is an important canonical problem. The boundary value problem is consecutively solved by a reduction to a system of singular boundary integral equations, and then to a system of Fredholm integral equations of the second kind, which effiectively is solved by one of three presented methods: A reduction to a system of the linear algebraic equations with the help of the etalon integral and the saddle point method numerical discretization based on Gauss quadrature formulas the method of successive approximations. The solution to the problem in the first method contains a denominator that takes into account the resonance process. Moreover, the precision of the main contribution of the short-wave asymptotic solution is ensured down to the quasi-stationary limit. The paper presents also comparisons of with earlier known results.
