Abstract:

The required inner products in the Galerkin solution of the integral equation, using a basis of exponential-weighted Laguerre polynomials, are expressed as series of algebraic forms. We are presently evaluating these series to get a feel for the invertibility of the integral equation transformed to a system of linear equations, prior to any inclusion of the anticipated asymptotic behavior from the Sommerfeld half-space problem. If this unmodified system of the first kind inverts nicely, then its inverse can be used to express the boundary value problem as a system of the second kind resulting in a whole new set of opportunities for iterative or perturbation series approaches.
