Abstract:

Transient wave propagation phenomena are exploited in many branches of engineering and applied science. Examples include pulsed sonar and radar systems, pulsed laser beams and their applications the use of seismic pulses in geophysical prospecting and ultrasonic pulses in medical imaging. The engineering literature provides an almost unlimited number of other examples. The continuing goal of the research performed under the contracts mentioned above was to develop mathematical methods which would provide both qualitative and quantitative understanding of transient wave propagation and scattering phenomena, with emphasis on acoustic and electromagnetic problems.
