Abstract [en]

Explicit symmetry relations for the Green's function subject to homogeneous boundary conditions are derived for arbitrary linear differential or integral equation problems in which the boundary surface has a set of symmetry elements. For corresponding homogeneous problems subject to inhomogeneous boundary conditions implicit symmetry relations involving the Green's function are obtained. The usefulness of these symmetry relations is illustrated by means of a recently developed self-consistent Green's function formalism of electromagnetic and acoustic scattering problems applied to the exterior scattering problem. One obtains explicit symmetry relations for the volume Green's function, the surface Green's function, and the interaction operator, and the respective symmetry relations are shown to be equivalent. This allows us to treat boundary symmetries of volume-integral equation methods, boundary-integral equation methods, and the T matrix formulation of acoustic and electromagnetic scattering under a common theoretical framework. By specifying a specific expansion basis the coordinate-free symmetry relations of, e.g., the surface Green's function can be brought into the form of explicit symmetry relations of its expansion coefficient matrix. For the specific choice of radiating spherical wave functions the approach is illustrated by deriving unitary reducible representations of non-cubic finite point groups in this basis, and by deriving the corresponding explicit symmetry relations of the coefficient matrix., The reducible representations can be reduced by group-theoretical techniques, thus bringing the coefficient matrix into block-diagonal form, which can greatly reduce ill-conditioning problems in numerical applications.
