Ignatchenko, V. A.; Polukhin, D. S.; Tsikalov, D. S. JOURNAL OF MAGNETISM AND MAGNETIC MATERIALS, 440 83-86; 10.1016/j.jmmm.2016.12.058 OCT 15 2017

A new self-consistent approximation proposed earlier, is compared with various existing approximations, as well as with a numerical simulation of solutions of the wave equation for a medium with one-dimensional inhomogeneities. The Green's function, found using the new approach, is the closest to the result obtained by the numerical simulation. The results of the work show that the new approach has undoubted advantages in the study of stochastic problems in media with longwave inhomogeneities. The new self-consistent approximation in some cases has advantages over a numerical method: a more rapid process of calculation and the possibility of consideration of three-dimensional problems.
