about

This volume contains almost complete proceedings of the NATO Advanced Study Institute (ASI) organised in 1979 to bring together principal innovators and numerous users of mathematical techniques for analysing the interaction of electromagnetic waves with engineering and biological structures. The mathematical disciplines which can be brought to bear on these problems necessitate examination of effectiveness, convergence and robustness of the derived analytic and num<_rical20_algorithms.20_the20_aim20_of20_this20_asi20_was20_to20_give20_a20_clear20_and20_up-to-date20_tutorial20_presentation20_of20_available20_techniques2c_20_and20_to20_bring20_together20_interested20_scientists2c_20_engineers20_and20_mathematiciaris2c_20_to20_discuss20_together20_their20_experience20_and20_to20_ensure20_wider20_familiarity20_with20_the20_subject.20_our20_programme20_consists20_of20_three20_distinct20_yet20_related20_parts.20_the20_first20_two20_of20_these20_reflect20_two20_somewhat20_different20_methods20_applicable20_for20_different20_ranges20_of20_l2f_a2c_20_where20_l20_represents20_a20_characteristic20_dimension20_of20_a20_structure20_and20_a20_is20_a20_representative20_wavelength-of20_radiation.20_the20_third20_part20_deals20_with20_the20_specific20_problem20_of20_biological20_interaction.20_in20_the20_first20_part20_28_low20_and20_intermediate20_frequency20_applications29_20_we20_offer20_tutorial20_texts20_and20_user-oriented20_discussions20_on20_main20_techniques20_and20_problems20_concerning3a_20_radiation2c_20_scattering2c_20_aperture20_penetration2c_20_inverse20_scattering2c_20_using20_moment20_methods20_and20_their20_developments.20_the20_approach20_to20_the20_high20_frequency20_applications20_forms20_the20_subject20_of20_the20_second20_part20_of20_this20_volume2c_20_concentrating20_mainly20_on20_the20_geometrical20_theory20_of20_diffraction20_28_gtd29_.20_there20_are20_three20_main20_variants20_of20_the20_gtd3a_20_uniform20_theory20_of20_diffraction20_28_utd29_2c_20_uniform20_asymptotic20_theory20_28_liat29_20_2c_20_spectral20_theory20_of20_diffraction20_28_std29_. algorithms.="" the="" aim="" of="" this="" asi="" was="" to="" give="" a="" clear="" and="" up-to-date="" tutorial="" presentation="" available="" _techniques2c_="" bring="" together="" interested="" _scientists2c_="" engineers="" _mathematiciaris2c_="" discuss="" their="" experience="" ensure="" wider="" familiarity="" with="" subject.="" our="" programme="" consists="" three="" distinct="" yet="" related="" parts.="" first="" two="" these="" reflect="" somewhat="" different="" methods="" applicable="" for="" ranges="" _l2f_a2c_="" where="" l="" represents="" characteristic="" dimension="" structure="" is="" representative="" wavelength-of="" radiation.="" third="" part="" deals="" specific="" problem="" biological="" interaction.="" in="" _28_low="" intermediate="" frequency="" _applications29_="" we="" offer="" texts="" user-oriented="" discussions="" on="" main="" techniques="" problems="" _concerning3a_="" _radiation2c_="" _scattering2c_="" aperture="" _penetration2c_="" inverse="" using="" moment="" developments.="" approach="" high="" applications="" forms="" subject="" second="" _volume2c_="" concentrating="" mainly="" geometrical="" theory="" diffraction="" _28_gtd29_.="" there="" are="" variants="" _gtd3a_="" uniform="" _28_utd29_2c_="" asymptotic="" _28_liat29_="" _2c_="" spectral="">
