A Truly Exact Perfect Absorbing Layer for Time-Harmonic Wave Scattering Problems
Prof. Li-Lian Wang
Nanyang Technological University

In this talk, we shall present a truly exact and optimal perfect absorbing layer (PAL) for domain truncation of the Helmholtz equation in an unbounded domain with a bounded scatterer. This technique is based on a complex compression coordinate transformation in polar coordinates, and a suitable substitution of the unknown field in the artificial layer. Compared with  the widely-used perfectly matched layer (PML) methods,  the distinctive  features of PAL lie in that (i)  it is truly exact in the sense  that the PAL-solution is identical to the original solution in the bounded domain reduced by the truncation layer; (ii) with the substitution, the PAL-equation is free of singular coefficients  and the substituted unknown field   is essentially non-oscillatory in the layer; and (iii) the construction is valid for general star-shaped domain truncation. By formulating the variational formulation in Cartesian coordinates, the implementation of this technique using standard spectral-element or finite-element methods can be made easy as a usual coding practice. We provide ample numerical examples to demonstrate that this method is highly accurate and robust for very high wave-number and thin layer. On the other hand, we shall also report some new idea of using a real coordinate transformation to construct a layer that can act as a PML and also produce an accurate approximation of far-field scattering waves. This talk is based on joint works with Yang Zhiguo at Shanghai Jiao Tong University.
