Geometric optics expansions for hyperbolic corner problems, I: Self-interaction phenomenon

Antoine Benoit

Vol. 9 (2016), No. 6, 1359–1418

In this article we are interested in the rigorous construction of geometric optics expansions for hyperbolic corner problems. More precisely we focus on the case where self-interacting phases occur. Those phases are proper to the high frequency asymptotics for the corner problem and correspond to rays that can display a homothetic pattern after a suitable number of reflections on the boundary. To construct the geometric optics expansions in that framework, it is necessary to solve a new amplitude equation in view of initializing the resolution of the WKB cascade.
