The problem of active shielding (AS) for a multiply connected domain consists of constructing additional sources of the field (e.g., acoustic) so that all individual subdomains can either communicate freely with one another or otherwise be shielded from their peers. This problem can be interpreted as a special inverse source problem for the differential equation (or system) that governs the field. In the paper, we obtain general solution for a discretized composite AS problem and show that it reduces to solving a collection of auxiliary problems for simply connected domains.
