A timely and authoritative guide to the state of the art of wave scattering

Scattering of Electromagnetic Waves offers in three volumes a complete and up-to-date treatment of wave scattering by random discrete scatterers and rough surfaces. Written by leading scientists who have made important contributions to wave scattering over three decades, this new work explains the principles, methods, and applications of this rapidly expanding, interdisciplinary field. It covers both introductory and advanced material and provides students and researchers in remote sensing as well as imaging, optics, and electromagnetic theory with a one-stop reference to a wealth of current research results. Plus, Scattering of Electromagnetic Waves contains detailed discussions of both analytical and numerical methods, including cutting-edge techniques for the recovery of earth/land parametric information.

The three volumes are entitled respectively Theories and Applications, Numerical Simulation, and Advanced Topics. In the second volume, Numerical Simulations, Leung Tsang (University of Washington) Jin Au Kong (MIT), Kung-Hau Ding (Air Force Research Lab), and Chi On Ao (MIT) cover:
* Layered media simulations
* Rough surface and volume scattering simulations
* Dense media models and simulations
* Electromagnetic scattering by discrete scatterers and a buried object
* Scattering by vertical cylinders above a surface
* Electromagnetic waves scattering by vegetation
* Computational methods and programs used for performing various simulations


The final of three volumes in which Tsang and Kong examine both theoretical and numerical methods that are commonly used for tackling electromagnetic wave scattering problems, which arise in many fields ranging from atomic physics and medical imaging to geoscience and remote sensing. Here they delve deeper into topics raised in the first two volumes. They emphasize remote sensing applications, but suggest that the material could also be useful to students and researchers in other fields. Computer codes for numerical simulations can be downloaded from a companion web site. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
