Understanding our future through Open Access research about our past...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Centre for the Social History of Health & Healthcare (CSHHH), based within the School of Humanities, and considered Scotland's leading centre for the history of health and medicine.

Research at CSHHH explores the modern world since 1800 in locations as diverse as the UK, Asia, Africa, North America, and Europe. Areas of specialism include contraception and sexuality; family health and medical services; occupational health and medicine; disability; the history of psychiatry; conflict and warfare; and, drugs, pharmaceuticals and intoxicants.

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.
