The inverse scattering problem is central to many areas of science and technology such as radar and sonar, medical imaging, geophysical exploration and nondestructive testing. This book is devoted to the mathematical and numerical analysis of the inverse scattering problem for acoustic and electromagnetic waves. To this second edition the authors have added new material on Newton's method for the inverse obstacle problem, a concise proof of uniqueness for the inverse medium problem, a discussion of the spectral theory of the far-field operator and a presentation of a new method for determining the support of an inhomogeneous medium from far-field data. In addition the text has been updated in various places.This book is devoted to the mathematical and numerical analysis of the inverse scattering problem for acoustic and electromagnetic waves.
