In this work we address the wave equation in homogeneous, unbounded domains and its numerical solution. In particular we are interested in the effect that the shape of a bounded obstacle has on the quality of some numerical schemes for the computation of the exterior Dirichlet-to-Neumann map. We discretize the Dirichlet-to-Neumann map in time by convolution quadrature and investigate how the correct choice of time-step depends on the highest frequency present in the system, the shape of the scaterrer, and the type of convolution quadrature used (linear multistep or Runge-Kutta) and its convergence order.
