Abstract : Id ntifiers: Karal-Keller theory. The Karal-Keller theory is applied to an explosive source in a spherical cavity where it becomes exact because the displacement series terminates after two terms. This solves the source problem as a necessary preliminary to considering both free-surface reflections in a homogen ous edia and propagation in inhomogeneous media. The dual problem of the purely rotational source is also solved. Collectively, the two problems illustrate how the asymptotic theory may, by terminating, yield an exact solution for an arbitrary wave form. (Author
