The Time domain integral equation for a straight wire antenna with the reduced kernel is not well-posed

Abstract

We show that the Pocklington integral equation for time-domain scattering from thin-wire antennas is not mathematically well-posed. This has considerable implications for numerical solution schemes. In particular, our argument explains the observed occurrence of rapidly oscillating errors in numerical solutions as the numerical grid sizes are reduced.
