Abstract
We prove new, sharp, wavenumberexplicit bounds on the norms of the Helmholtz single and doublelayer boundaryintegral operators as mappings from L ^{2}(∂Ω) → H ^{1}(∂Ω) (where ∂Ω is the boundary of the obstacle). The new bounds are obtained using estimates on the restriction to the boundary of quasimodes of the Laplacian, building on recent work by the first author and collaborators. Our main motivation for considering these operators is that they appear in the standard secondkind boundaryintegral formulations, posed in L ^{2}(∂Ω) , of the exterior Dirichlet problem for the Helmholtz equation. Our new wavenumberexplicit L ^{2}(∂Ω) → H ^{1}(∂Ω) bounds can then be used in a wavenumberexplicit version of the classic compactperturbation analysis of Galerkin discretisations of these secondkind equations; this is done in the companion paper (Galkowski, Müller, and Spence in Wavenumberexplicit analysis for the Helmholtz hBEM: error estimates and iteration counts for the Dirichlet problem, 2017. arXiv:1608.01035).
