Asymptotic expansions of transmission eigenvalues for small perturbations of media with generally signed contrast

  • In this paper we revisit the transmission eigenvalue problem for an inhomogeneous media of compact support perturbed by small penetrable homogeneous inclusions. Assuming that the inhomogeneous background media is known and smooth, we investigate how these small volume inclusions affect the transmission eigenvalues. Our perturbation analysis makes use of the formulation of the transmission eigenvalue problem introduced Kirsch in [8], which requires that the contrast of the inhomogeneity is of one-sign only near the boundary. Thus, our approach can handle small perturbations with positive, negative or zero (voids) contrasts. In addition to proving the convergence rate for the eigenvalues corresponding to the perturbed media as inclusions' volume goes to zero, we also provide the explicit first correction term in the asymptotic expansion for simple eigenvalues. The correction term involves computable information about the known inhomogeneity as well as the location, size and refractive index of small perturbations. Our asymptotic formula has the potential to be used to recover information about small inclusions from knowledge of the real transmission eigenvalues, which can be determined from scattering data.
