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.
