A note on point source diffraction by a wedge

A. D. Rawlins

Full-text: Open access


The object of this paper is to give new expressions for the wave field produced when a time harmonic point source is diffracted by a wedge with Dirichlet or Neumann boundary conditions on its faces. The representation of the total field is expressed in terms of quadratures of elementary functions, rather than Bessel functions, which is usual in the literature. An analogous expression is given for the three-dimensional free-space Green's function.
