Bharathi, Vijaya L and Chakrabarti, A (1991) Solution of a Boundary-Value Problem associated with Diffraction of Water Waves by a Nearly Vertical Barrier. In: IMA Journal of Applied Mathematics, 47 (1). 23 -32.Full text not available from this repository.
An exact solution is derived for a boundary-value problem for Laplace's equation which is a generalization of the one occurring in the course of solution of the problem of diffraction of surface water waves by a nearly vertical submerged barrier. The method of solution involves the use of complex function theory, the Schwarz reflection principle, and reduction to a system of two uncoupled Riemann-Hilbert problems. Known results, representing the reflection and transmission coefficients of the water wave problem involving a nearly vertical barrier, are derived in terms of the shape function.
