Piotr Ufimtsev
Northrop Grumman Corporation, California, USA
Course Type
Group 2
maggio o giugno 2008
Outline of the Course • What is the diffraction phenomenon • Practical applications of diffraction • Formulation of diffraction problems • Place occupied by PTD in the general theory of diffraction • Physical Optics (PO) as a starting point of PTD • Study of the theory of Elementary Edge Waves, which is the basis for the solution of complex 3-D problems • Ray and caustic asymptotics for 3-D problems • Examples of some specific problems • Real potential of PTD • Some versions, modifications, and extensions of PTD • Alternative HF techniques: GTD, UAT, UTD, ... • Relationships between HF techniques • Diffraction principles in Stealth-Technology
