This work is devoted to solving the scalar wave equation for the case when the size of the region is several hundred wavelengths. An asymptotic method is developed for solving the problem of diffraction of an arbitrary scalar wave on a three-dimensional layer with a pseudo-periodic band structure.

Helmholtz equation, pseudoperiodic structure, scalar wave equation, pseudo-periodic band structure.
