Description

The main purpose of Scattering of Electromagnetic Waves by Obstacles is to give a theoretical treatment of the scattering phenomena, and to illustrate numerical computations of some canonical scattering problems for different geometries and materials. The scattering theory is also important in the theory of passive antennas, and this book gives several examples on this topic.
.

Topics covered include;

  • An introduction to the basic equations used in scattering
  • The Green functions and dyadic
  • Integral representation of fields
  • Introductory scattering theory
  • Scattering in the time-domain
  • Approximations and applications
  • Spherical vector waves
  • Scattering by spherical objects
  • The Null-Field approach
  • Propagation in stratified media


About the Author


Gerhard Kristensson is Professor Emeritus at Lund University, Sweden, where he held the Chair of Electromagnetic Theory for 25 years. He has served as a member of the Board for Editors of Wave Motion, the Editorial Board and the International Advisory Panel of Inverse Problems, and the Review Board of Journal of Electromagnetic Waves and Applications and Progress in Electromagnetic Research. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Physics, and during 2006-2014 he was the chairman of the Swedish National committee of Radio Science (SNRV) and official representative for Sweden in the International Union of Radio Science (URSI). Professor Kristensson has a general interest in electromagnetic scattering problems and wave propagation in inhomogeneous media.

Book review

This fundamental (and in many respects encyclopedic) 755-page monograph was published as part of the “Mario Boella Series on Electromagnetism in Information and Communication” edited by P. L. E. Uslenghi. The main purpose of the book is systematic exposition of several important aspects of the electromagnetic scattering theory along with the presentation of the requisite mathematical apparatus and illustrative numerical results. What distinguishes this volume from the vast majority of related books is the extensive treatment of the time-domain scattering theory.
