Asymptotic approximation of eigenvalues of vector equations

Chapman, S. J. and Salazar, J. D. (2005) Asymptotic approximation of eigenvalues of vector equations. Eurpoean Journal of Applied Mathematics, 16 (4). pp. 447-466. ISSN 0956-7925



A vectorial extension of the Keller-Rubinow method of computing asymptotic approximations of eigenvalues in bounded domains is presented. The method is applied to the problem of a multimode step-profile cylindrical optical fibre, including the effects of polarisation. A comparison of the asymptotic results with the exact eigenvalues is made when these are available, and the agreement is shown to be good.
