Asymptotic analysis of an approximate model for time harmonic waves in media with thin slots
ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis - Modélisation Mathématique et Analyse Numérique, Tome 40 (2006) no. 1, pp. 63-97.

In this article, we derive a complete mathematical analysis of a coupled 1D-2D model for 2D wave propagation in media including thin slots. Our error estimates are illustrated by numerical results.
