The generalised eigenfunction expansion method (GEM) and the singularity expansion method (SEM) are applied to solve the canonical problem of wave scattering on an infinite stretched string in the time domain. The GEM, which is shown to be equivalent to d'Alembert's formula when no scatterer is present, is also derived in the case of a point-mass scatterer coupled to a spring. The discrete GEM, which generalises the discrete Fourier transform, is shown to reduce to matrix multiplication. The SEM, which is derived from the Fourier transform and the residue theorem, is also applied to solve the problem of scattering by the mass-spring system. The GEM and SEM are also applied to the problem of scattering by a mass positioned a fixed distance from an anchor point, which supports more complicated resonant behavior.
