Complete radiation boundary conditions for the Helmholtz equation. I: Waveguides. (English) Zbl 1412.65187

Summary: We consider the use of complete radiation boundary conditions for the solution of the Helmholtz equation in waveguides. A general analysis of well-posedness, convergence, and finite element approximation is given. In addition, methods for the optimization of the boundary condition parameters are considered. The theoretical results are illustrated by some simple numerical experiments.
