Perfectly-matched-layer truncation is exponentially accurate at high frequency

by   Jeffrey Galkowski, et al.

We consider a wide variety of scattering problems including scattering by Dirichlet, Neumann, and penetrable obstacles. We show that for any fixed perfectly-matched-layer (PML) width and a steep-enough scaling angle, the PML solution is exponentially close, both in frequency and the tangent of the scaling angle, to the true scattering solution. Moreover, for a fixed scaling angle and large enough PML width, the PML solution is exponentially close to the true scattering solution in both frequency and the PML width. In fact, the exponential bound holds with rate of decay c(wtanθ -C) k where w is the PML width and θ is the scaling angle. More generally, the results of the paper hold in the framework of black-box scattering under the assumption of an exponential bound on the norm of the cutoff resolvent, thus including problems with strong trapping. These are the first results on the exponential accuracy of PML at high-frequency with non-trivial scatterers.
