Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm looking for an efficient algorithm to solve this kind of equation :

[tex]S = (1-\nabla^2)B[/tex]

where both S(x,y) and B(x,y) can both be non-periodic functions. We know S and want to find out what is B.

I was wondering if there was a 'well known' method to solve this kind or problem in the case where both S and B are non-periodic functions...

I've started to write something...

Let [tex]S=S_0+S_*[/tex] where S0 and S* are non periodic and periodic functions respectively. I take S0 such that I have [tex]S_0 = S[/tex] on the boundaries of my domain, so S* is null there.

you have : [tex]S_* = (1-\nabla^2)(B+S_1)[/tex]

with [tex] -(1-\nabla^2)S_1 = S_0 [/tex]

You can fourier transform and obtain :

[tex]\mathcal{F}\left(S_*\right)= \mathcal{F}\left((1-\nabla^2)(B+S_1)\right) = (1+k^2) \mathcal{F}(B+S_1)[/tex]

so that you can find :

[tex]B = \mathcal{F}^{-1}\left(\frac{\tilde{S_*}}{1+k^2}\right) - S_1[/tex]

you can then have a solution of the problem by finding the analytical easy-to-integrate function S0.

In 1D it seems ok, but in 2D S0 must have the correct values on all borders wich seems a bit complicated...
