Edge resonance in an elastic semiinfinite cylinder
(2000) In Applicable Analysis 74(34). p.479495 Abstract
 We study the threedimensional elasticity operator in a semiinfinite circular cylinder subject to free boundary conditions, in the case of zero Poisson ratio. We prove, adapting the method from I. Roitberg, D. G. Vasilʹev and T. Weidl [Quart. J. Mech. Appl. Math. 51 (1998), no. 1, 113; MR1610688 (98m:73041)], i.e., by first finding an invariant subspace for the elasticity operator such that the essential spectrum has a strictly positive lower bound and then finding a test function in this space for which the variational quotient takes a value below the bottom of the essential spectrum, that there is an eigenvalue embedded in the continuous spectrum. Physically, an eigenvalue corresponds to a `trapped mode', that is, a harmonic... (More)
 We study the threedimensional elasticity operator in a semiinfinite circular cylinder subject to free boundary conditions, in the case of zero Poisson ratio. We prove, adapting the method from I. Roitberg, D. G. Vasilʹev and T. Weidl [Quart. J. Mech. Appl. Math. 51 (1998), no. 1, 113; MR1610688 (98m:73041)], i.e., by first finding an invariant subspace for the elasticity operator such that the essential spectrum has a strictly positive lower bound and then finding a test function in this space for which the variational quotient takes a value below the bottom of the essential spectrum, that there is an eigenvalue embedded in the continuous spectrum. Physically, an eigenvalue corresponds to a `trapped mode', that is, a harmonic oscillation localized near the edge. This effect, known in mechanics as the `edge resonance', has been extensively studied numerically and experimentally. Our paper extends the mathematical justification of such phenomena provided by Roitberg et al. [op. cit.] to a threedimensional setting. (Less)
