Spacetime triangle diagram technique for sectoral horn waveguides Andrei B. Utkin INOV – Inesc Inova¸c˜ ao and CeFEMA, IST, Technical University of Lisbon, Portugal; e-mail: [email protected] Extension of the STTD (spacetime triangle diagram) technique — a powerful method of solving problems related to generation and propagation of acoustic and electromagnetic signals (finite pulses) — to the case of wave motion within a sectorial waveguide is discussed. The paper shows how a general modal solution, which describes the wave-pulse generation by a source arbitrarily distributed within a sectoral horn, can be constructed for the Dirichlet or Neumann boundary conditions imposed on the horn walls. Providing an exact solution, readily implementable for particular sources using general software packages for scientific computing, the obtained integral formulas represent a powerful tool for analysis of pulsed wave propagation in the sectorial horn waveguides.

• the model geometry does not possess angular symmetry, so the coordinate φ must be explicitly separated for any source configuration. The modal expansions must match boundary conditions imposed on the lateral and top/bottom walls of the horn. Instantiation of these conditions depends on the physical meaning of the wavefunction, which may be an acoustic wave or an electromagnetic parameter resulted from some scalarization procedure. 2

Statement of the problem

Geometry of the problems of wave motion in question is shown in Fig. 1. The most general treatment of wave motion imProviding inherently causal solutions directly in plies consideration of sources and, thus, leads to the the spacetime domain, the STTD (spacetime triinhomogeneous wave equation angle diagram) technique [1] has been successfully applied to solve a wide range of electromagnetic □ψ(τ, r) = j(τ, r) (1) and scalar problems of wave motion. At the moment, the STTD methodology is developed for nu- Here □ is the d’Alembert (wave) operator [8] for the merous models resulting in the wave and wave- positive spacetime metric signature [+ − − −], ψ like hyperbolic partial differential equations writ- the wavefunction, j the source, r the coordinate of ten in the Cartesian, cylindrical, and spherical co- the observation point, and τ the observation time ordinate systems [2–5]. In 2012, specific STTDs expressed in the units of length using the wavefront were constructed for the elliptic cylinder coordinate system [6], enabling the general solution to the causal inhomogeneous problem of wave propagation in an elliptical waveguide to be found as an expansion in terms of transient Mathieu modes. Based on preliminary theoretical considerations made by Borisov [2], the present study describes extension of the STTD technique to another practically important case (see, e.g., [7]) of the sectoral horn waveguide constrained top and bottom by two parallel planes. The adopted methodology has the following specificity: • the consideration is carried out in the cylindrical (rather than spherical) coordinates (ρ, φ, z), Figure 1: Schematic representation of the sec• the unseparated spatial variable is untraditional torial horn waveguide.

Construction and analysis of the general solution

The next stage of application of the STTD technique implies constructing the unique solution to the reduced problem (9) using the Riemann–Volterra integral formula. Remarkably, Riemann function for the PDE in question is not known. However, we may notice that ( mπ )2 1 ( mπ 1 ) ( mπ 1 ) − = − + = ν(ν + 1) , 2θ 4 2θ 2 2θ 2 (11) 1 where ν := mπ − .

In the absence of the third term in the square brackets, (12) turns into the 1D Klein– Gordon equation with known Riemann function (see, e.g., [9–11]) ( √ ) 2 2 R1 (τ, ρ; τ ′ , ρ′ ) = J0 s (τ − τ ′ ) − (ρ − ρ′ )

Conclusive remarks

Despite certain degree of complexity, the obtained general modal solution represents a powerful tool for analysis of pulsed wave propagation in the sectorial horn waveguides. It is an exact solution, which can be readily instantiated for particular sources using general software packages for scientific computing. As is the case for all solutions obtained with ( 2 ) 2 2 ρ + ρ′ − (τ − τ ′ ) ′ ′ R2 (τ, ρ; τ , ρ ) = Pν (14) the help of the STTD technique, for finite sources, 2ρρ′ the integration is carried out within a limited region, assuring the boundedness of the wavefunction (Pν being the Legendre function). Thus, we can support (i.e., correct representation of the signal or construct the desired Riemann function using Olev- pulsed wave in question). skii’s theorem [13] as follows (13) (J0 being the Bessel function of the first kind of order zero) and in the absence of the forth term — into the Euler–Poisson–Darboux equation, whose Riemann function is [12]
