Diffraction of electromagnetic waves

The fundamental diffraction problem is the wedge problem. The scientific and practical interest on this problem is documented by hundreds of papers that every year are published on scientific journals devoted to several different research areas such as electromagnetic waves, elastic and acoustic waves, fracture mechanics and so on.

The Wiener-Hopf formulation of this problem and the new factorization techniques ideate by our group allow one to solve new canonical problems involving structures with edges immersed in very general media.
