Maslov’s Method of the Canonical Operator

  • Yu. A. Kravtsov
  • Yu. I. Orlov
Part of the Springer Series on Wave Phenomena book series (SSWAV, volume 15)


This method evolved from a very simple idea of describing the asymptotic of the field first in a mixed coordinate-momentum space and performing the Fourier transformation next in the configuration space. This idea proved to be extremely fruitful and effective, and leads to the formulation of heuristic applicability conditions of Maslov’s method.
