# Embedding Formulas and Singularities in Acoustic Scattering

Conference paper

## Abstract

The solution to the scattering problem for a plane wave incident from an arbitrary angle on an arbitrary configuration of *N* parallel strips is shown to be related to 2*N* separate scattering problems for the same geometry, but with different boundary conditions. The number of separate problems that are required is shown to be determined by the number of singularities in the velocity field which in turn is given by the number of strip edges.
