About these proceedings


The book contains presentations of recent and ongoing research on inverse problems and its application to engineering and physical sciences. The articles are structured around three closely related topics: Inverse scattering problems, inverse boundary value problems, and inverse spectral problems. The applications range from quantum and electromagnetic scattering to medical imaging, geophysical sounding of the Earth, and non-destructive material evaluation. The book gives an up-to-date presentation of the most recent developments in these rapidlychanging and evolving fields of applied research. The contributors of the volume give extra emphysis to the pedagogical aspects of their presentation to make this collection eysily accessible to graduate students as well as to people working on nearby fields of research.
