We have decided to discontinue the publication of preprints on our preprint server as of 1 March 2024. The publication culture within mathematics has changed so much due to the rise of repositories such as ArXiV (www.arxiv.org) that we are encouraging all institute members to make their preprints available there. An institute's repository in its previous form is, therefore, unnecessary. The preprints published to date will remain available here, but we will not add any new preprints here.
Time-domain Dirichlet-to-Neumann map and its discretization
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.
