Abstract

Finite and boundary element methods have been used by many authors to solve mathematical
physics problems. However, the coupling of these two methods happens to be more efficient as it combines
their merits. In this paper, the mathematical analysis of the coupling of finite and boundary element methods
for the Helmholtz equation is presented.
