The Split-Step Padé-Fourier Solution
Range-dependent ocean acoustics problems can be solved accurately and efficiently with the parabolic equation method. Several approaches have been developed, including the split-step Padé and split-step Fourier solutions. The split-step Padé solution is based on rational approximations and provides greater accuracy. The split-step Fourier solution is based on a linear approximation to the square root of an operator and provides greater efficiency for some high-frequency problems. The attributes of these approaches are combined to obtain the split-step Padé-Fourier solution, which provides a high level of accuracy and permits range steps of up to thousands of wavelengths for some high-frequency problems. This solution is obtained by multiplying and dividing by the exponential on which the split-step Fourier solution is based. One of the factors is implemented using the split-step Fourier solution. The other step is based on a rational approximation of an exponential function with a reduced oscillation rate, which permits larger range steps.
