Abstract

It is well-known that the choice of the auxiliary surface and the arrangement of radiation centers play a decisive role for ensuring accuracy and stability of the method of auxiliary sources (MAS). Using level set technique, a numerical scheme is proposed to determine the optimal location and amplitudes of the auxiliary sources for three-dimensional scattering problems.
