Hardy space on the polydisk and scattering in layered media    [PDF]

Peter C. Gibson
Hardy space on the polydisk provides the setting for a global description of scattering in piecewise-constant layered media, giving a simple qualitative interpretation for the nonlinear dependence of the Green's function on reflection coefficients and layer depths. Using explicit formulas for amplitudes, we prove that the power spectrum of the Green's function is approximately constant. In addition we exploit a connection to Jacobi polynomials to derive formulas for computing reflection coefficients from partial amplitude data. Unlike most approaches to layered media, which variously involve scaling limits, approximations or iterative methods, the formulas and methods in the present paper are exact and direct.
