With no reflections (or reflection from a single structure) the methods that proceed in space (Refraction and Propagation) or time (TJLmestep) seem the natural ones from a physical point of view. With repeated reflections, recourse must he taken to the solution of an Elliptic "boundary value problem. - It is suggested that a P-method based on (energy) flux lines and energy fronts be developed for cases where the R-methods give crossing orthogonals.}, number={15}, journal={Coastal Engineering Proceedings}, year={1976}, month={Jan.}, pages={50} }
