Abstract [en]

Creeping rays can give an important contribution to the solution of medium to high frequency scattering problems. They are generated at the shadow lines of the illuminated scatterer by grazing incident rays and propagate along geodesics on the scatterer surface, continuously shedding diffracted rays in their tangential direction. In this paper we show how the ray propagation problem can be formulated as a partial differential equation (PDE) in a three-dimensional phase space. To solve the PDE we use a fast marching method. The PDE solution contains information about all possible creeping rays. This information includes the phase and amplitude of the field, which are extracted by a fast postprocessing. Computationally the cost of solving the PDE is less than tracing all rays individually by solving a system of ordinary differential equations(ODE). We consider an application to monostatic radar cross section problems where creeping rays from all illumination angles must be computed.
