Gap detection in the spectrum of an elastic periodic waveguide with a free surface. (Russian) Zbl 1187.78042
In a previous paper by the author, a method of proving the existence of at least one gap in the homogeneous spectrum of a three-dimensional periodic wave-guide was proposed. Here, the method is modified and it is used for proving the existence of a gap in the spectrum of a wave-guide with a free surface.
