Abstract:

This project was concerned with the inverse scattering problem for time harmonic acoustic and electromagnetic waves. A new method has been developed to solve problems of this type based on the theory of Herglotz wave functions and nonlinear optimization methods. Preliminary numerical examples have been given for the case of both acoustic and electromagnetic waves.
