This is an obvious homework problem.
Consider the simple problem of a plane wave reflected off a planar
boundary in an infinite space. This is trivial analytically, and
impossible numerically. Now consider the problem of long-wavelength
ocean waves scattered off a real coastline. This is impossible
analytically but very doable numerically.
