Numerical approximation of the scattering amplitude in elasticity

Juan A. Barceló, Carlos Castro

We propose a numerical method to approximate the scattering amplitudes for the elasticity system with a non-constant matrix potential in dimensions $d=2$ and $3$. This requires to approximate first the scattering field, for some incident waves, which can be written as the solution of a suitable Lippmann-Schwinger equation. In this work we adapt the method introduced by G. Vainikko in \cite{V} to solve such equations when considering the Lam\'e operator. Convergence is proved for sufficiently smooth potentials. Implementation details and numerical examples are also given.
