Direct and inverse scattering of elastic waves by diffraction gratings (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
The talk presents joint work with Guanghui Hu on the scattering of time-harmonic plane elastic waves by two-dimensional periodic structures. The first part presents existence and uniqueness results for the direct problem , using a variational approach. For the inverse problem, we discuss global uniqueness results with a minimal number of incident pressure or shear waves under the boundary conditions of the third and fourth kind. Generalizations to biperiodic elastic diffraction gratings in 3D are also mentioned. Finally we consider a reconstruction method applied to the inverse Dirichlet problem for the quasi-periodic 2D Navier equation.
