The super-resonance is mathematically that the matrix B=I−k2α(ω)RgG0lens→lens(ω)in Eq. (3) is strongly ill-posed, which means that the ratio σ1σN(i.e., the condition number) is very large, whereσ1is the first singular value (the maximum) of the matrix, and σNis the final (the minimum) singular value.
