Abstract

We consider the integral operator defined on a circular disk, and with kernel the Green function of the Helmholtz operator. We present an analytic framework for the explicit computation of the singular system of this kernel. In particular, the main formulas of this framework are given by a characteristic equation for the singular values and explicit expressions for the corresponding singular functions. We provide also a property of the singular values, that gives an important information for the numerical evaluation of the singular system. Finally, we present a simple numerical experiment, where the singular system computed by a simple implementation of these analytic formulas is compared with the singular system obtained by a discretization of the Green function of the Helmholtz operator.
