9 Scopus citations


A variational principle is developed for scattering of waves by rough surfaces. It provides a prescription for improving the results of other methods and also provides a quantitative measure of their accuracy. This makes it possible not only to select the best available analytical treatment for any given application, but also to improve its accuracy.
