## Analytical and Computational Methods in Scattering and Applied MathematicsProfessor Ralph Kleinman was director of the Center for the Mathematics of Waves and held the UNIDEL Professorship of the University of Delaware. Before his death in 1998, he made major scientific contributions in the areas of electromagnetic scattering, wave propagation, and inverse problems. He was instrumental in bringing together the mathematical and engineering communities working in these fields, and actively collaborated with a number of colleagues from both communities. It was in Professor Kleinman's memory that leading researchers in the fields of wave propagation, scattering, and applied mathematics gathered for an international conference at the University of Delaware in November 1998. This Research Note comprises papers on these topics presented at the conference along with other contributions by Ralph's colleagues. The papers consist of authoritative overviews by experts in their fields and new results from leading researchers. With many of the contributions multidisciplinary in nature and presentation of recent advances, Analytical and Computational Methods in Scattering and Applied Mathematics will prove of interest to engineers working in electromagnetics and wave propagation and to applied mathematicians working in partial differential equations and inverse problems |
