The Riemann–Hilbert approach to the Helmholtz equation in a quarter-plane: Neumann, Robin and Dirichlet boundary conditions
We revisit the Helmholtz equation in a quarter-plane in the framework of the Riemann–Hilbert approach to linear boundary value problems suggested in late 1990s by A. Fokas. We show the role of the Sommerfeld radiation condition in Fokas’ scheme.
