### Numerical treatment of 3-dimensional potential problem

Assuming an incident wave to be a field source, we calculate the field potential in a neighborhood of an inhomogeneous body. This problem which has been formulated in ${\mathbf{R}}^{3}$can be reduced to a bounded domain. Namely, a boundary condition for the potential is formulated on a sphere. Then the potential satisfies a well posed boundary value problem in a ball containing the body. A numerical approximation is suggested and its convergence is analyzed.
