This ebook is dedicated to the examine of the acoustic wave equation and of the Maxwell process, the 2 commonest wave equations encountered in physics or in engineering. the most target is to give an in depth research in their mathematical and actual homes. Wave equations are time based. despite the fact that, use of the Fourier trans shape reduces their learn to that of harmonic structures: the harmonic Helmholtz equation, relating to the acoustic equation, or the har monic Maxwell method. This ebook concentrates at the research of those harmonic difficulties, that are a primary step towards the research of extra normal time-dependent difficulties. In every one case, we provide a mathematical atmosphere that permits us to end up life and specialty theorems. we've systematically selected using variational formulations concerning concerns of actual strength. We research the essential representations of the ideas. those representa tions yield a number of necessary equations. We learn their crucial houses. We introduce variational formulations for those fundamental equations, that are the root of so much numerical approximations. varied elements of this booklet have been taught for no less than ten years by way of the writer on the post-graduate point at Ecole Poly approach and the college of Paris 6, to scholars in utilized arithmetic. the particular presentation has been validated on them. I desire to thank them for his or her lively and optimistic participation, which has been super worthwhile, and that i make an apology for forcing them to profit a few geometry of surfaces.

Thus L+ y;m is proportional to y;m. 87). This implies (the spherical harmonics have a unit 26 2. The Helmholtz Equation norm and so are defined up to an arbitrary multiplicative factor of modulus 1. 95) By induction, we see that (L+)n increases the index m by n while (L_)n decreases the index m by n. 95), starting from the value m = 0, as we know the expression of y/o = IP I , the l-th Legendre polymonial. 96) We have, for m > 0 L+y/m { =--')'le i (m+1)ip (sino d~IPr(cosO)+m :~::IPr(COSO)). 97) yields 1';n+lIP;n+l { 1'1 = - J(l-m)(l+m+l) cosO IPm) ( .

In that case, the explicit solution to the Dirichlet problem is a particular lifting which is called the harmonic lifting. - The above results were established in the case of a domain in IR3 delimited by a surface. It is quite clear that, changing slightly the definitions, they can be adapted to domains in IR 2 delimited by plane curves, or to domains in IRn delimited by hypersurfaces of dimension n - 1. We will now give further properties of the Sobolev spaces. 4 There exists an extension operator IP, continuous from Hm(n i ) to Hm(IR 3 ).

For m = 0, y/o is the Legendre polynomiallP t · In order to describe the functions y/m, we introduce new differential operators. cose 8 ) . 4. 71) where [A, B] = AB - BA. {) (OU 00 L3 L +u - e L+L3 U . {) . 70) by subtraction. 71) is then deduced by conjugation. {)2 + ! 69). 75). 69). 3) and from the expression of L 3 . 75) of the operator /)"S and 24 2.
