Abstract

Radiation boundary conditions are derived for partial differential equations which describe wave phenomena. Assuming the evolution of the system to be governed by a Lagrangian variational principle, boundary conditions are obtained with Noether's theorem from the requirement that they transmit some appropriate density--such as the energy density--as well as possible. The theory is applied to a nonlinear version of the Klein-Gordon equation. For this application numerical test results are presented. In an accompanying paper the theory is applied to a two-dimensional wave equation.
