Construction of the space-time ray asymptotic forms in nonstationary problems on the basis of stationary high-frequency asymptotic formulas. (Russian) Zbl 0604.76072

An algorithm is proposed for the transition from the short-wave length asymptotic formula of a stationary problem to the space-time asymptotic expression of the corresponding nonstationary problem of the propagation of linear waves.
The connection between the algorithm considered and the constructions of the space-time ray method is studied. As an example, the problem of finding a diffraction wave in a deep shadow behind a smooth convex obstacle is considered in the case when the incident wave is given by its space-time ray decomposition. All constructions are formal and based on the results of a stationary problem.
