The use of discrete sources in scattering theory has generated significant interest in recent years.
A variety of numerical methods using discrete sources now exist. These include the multiple multipole method, the method of auxiliary sources, and the Yasuura method or fictitious current method. In this book, the authors unify these formulations in the context of the so-called discrete sources method.

The book includes:

* 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

Acoustic and Electromagnetic Scattering Analysis using Discrete Sources will be a valuable reference tool for graduate students and researchers working on applied light-scattering problems in electrical engineering, astronomy, applied mathematics, optics, meteorology, biophysics and remote sensing.
