Inverse Acoustic and Electromagnetic Scattering Theory by David Colton, Rainer Kress

By David Colton, Rainer Kress

The inverse scattering challenge is relevant to many parts of technological know-how and know-how corresponding to radar and sonar, clinical imaging, geophysical exploration and nondestructive trying out. This publication is dedicated to the mathematical and numerical research of the inverse scattering challenge for acoustic and electromagnetic waves. during this 3rd version, new sections were additional at the linear sampling and factorization tools for fixing the inverse scattering challenge in addition to increased remedies of new release tools and area of expertise theorems for the inverse problem challenge. those additions have in flip required an improved presentation of either transmission eigenvalues and boundary critical equations in Sobolev areas. As within the prior versions, emphasis has been given to simplicity over generality hence offering the reader with an available advent to the sphere of inverse scattering theory.

Review of previous editions:

“Colton and Kress have written a scholarly, cutting-edge account in their view of direct and inverse scattering. The e-book is a excitement to learn as a graduate textual content or to dip into at relaxation. It indicates a couple of open difficulties and should be a resource of suggestion for a few years to come.”

SIAM assessment, September 1994

“This publication will be at the table of any researcher, any pupil, any instructor attracted to scattering theory.”
