Abstract

© 2014 American Mathematical Society. A waveguide occupies a domain G in Rn+1, n ≥ 1, having several cylindrical outlets to infinity. The waveguide is described by the Dirichlet problem for the Helmholtz equation. The scattering matrix S(μ) with spectral parameter μ changes its size when μ crosses a threshold. To calculate S(μ) in a neighborhood of a threshold, an "augmented" scattering matrix S(μ) is introduced, which keeps its size near the threshold and is analytic in μ there. A minimizer of a quadratic functional JR(·, μ) serves as an approximation to a row of the matrix S(μ). To construct such a functional, an auxiliary boundary-value problem is solved in the bounded domain obtained by cutting off the waveguide outlets to infinity at a distance R. As R→∞, the minimizer a(R, μ) tends exponentially to the corresponding row of S(μ) uniformly with respect to μ in a neighborhood of the threshold. The neighborhood may contain some waveguide eigenvalues corresponding to eigenfunctions exponentially decaying at
