The discrete sources method is an efficient and powerful tool for solving a large class of boundary-value problems in scattering theory. A variety of numerical methods for discrete sources now exist. In this book, the authors unify these formulations in the context of the so-called discrete sources method.

Key Features
• Comprehensive presentation of the discrete sources method
• Original theory - an extension of the conventional null-field method using discrete sources
• Practical examples that demonstrate the efficiency and flexibility of elaborated methods (scattering by particles with high aspect ratio, rough particles, nonaxisymmetric particles, multiple scattering)
• List of discrete sources programmes available via the Internet

Audience: Researchers and students in advanced electromagnetics and electrical engineering, physics, astronomy, optics, meteorology, biophysics, remote sensing, optical particle sizing, and applied mathematics.

From the Publisher
"The authors have written very well on their chosen focus. Anyone who is interested in scattering theory should order a copy of this book for their personal use."
—Optik 112, No. 4, 2001
The authors have written very well on their chosen focus. Anyone who is interested in scattering theory should order a copy of this book for their personal use.
For graduate engineering and physics students and researchers in scattering theory with at least a minimal background in functional analysis, Doicu (chemical and process engineering, U. of Bremen, Germany), Yuri Eremin (applied mathematics and computer science, Moscow State U.) and Thomas Wriedt (particle technology and characterization, Institute f<:u>r Werkstofftechnik, Bremen) combine their different insights to present a mathematically rigorous and self-contained treatise on using discrete sources in scattering theory. They include only their own research results, but reference others. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
