Abstract

We present a boundary-element-method numerical procedure that can be used to solve for the diffusion equation of the field autocorrelation function in any arbitrary geometry with various boundary and source properties. We use this numerical method to study finite-sized effects in a circular slab and the influence of the angle in a cone-plate geometry. The latter is also compared with exact analytical solutions obtained for an equivalent bidimensional geometry. In most cases the deviation from well-known predictions of the correlation function remains small.
