A spectral method to detect perfect invisibility in waveguidesMS1

We consider the propagation of waves in a waveguide with a localized defect. We propose a spectral approach to compute, for a given setting (geometry, material properties,...), frequencies for which there is an incident field such that the associated scattered field is null at infinity. In such a situation, the defect can not be identified from measurements made with devices located far from it. In other words it is invisible to the incident field.
