time-harmonic velocity potential; uniqueness theorem; Helmholtz equation; Neumann’s eigenvalue problem for Laplacian; integral equation method; weighted Hölder spaces
Summary:
The uniqueness theorem is proved for the linearized problem describing radiation and scattering of time-harmonic water waves by a vertical shell having an arbitrary horizontal cross-section. The uniqueness holds for all frequencies, and various locations of the shell are possible: surface-piercing, totally immersed and bottom-standing. A version of integral equation technique is outlined for finding a solution.
