Miscellaneous Approaches to the Inverse Problems at Fixed l

Part of the Texts and Monographs in Physics book series (TMP)


This chapter is a survey of further generalizations of the methods which have been described in previous chapters, new approaches, and approaches to more complicated problems. The study is limited to radial problems (for “one dimensional” problems see Chapter XVII). Throughout this chapter, most results are stated without proof and the reader who is interested in these proofs should refer to the literature. The notations are either the ones that are used elsewhere in this book or are specially given in each section.

These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
