By Bjorn Engquist,Gregory A. Kriegsmann

This IMA quantity in arithmetic and its functions COMPUTATIONAL WAVE PROPAGATION is predicated at the workshop with an analogous name and used to be a vital part of the 1994-1995 IMA software on "Waves and Scattering." we wish to thank Bjorn Engquist and Gregory A. Kriegsmann for his or her exertions in organizing this assembly and in enhancing the lawsuits. We additionally take this chance to thank the nationwide technological know-how beginning, the military learn place of work, and the workplace of Naval examine, whose monetary aid made this workshop attainable. A vner Friedman Robert Gulliver v PREFACE even supposing the sphere of wave propagation and scattering has its classical roots within the final century, it has loved a wealthy and colourful existence over the last 50 peculiar years. Scientists, engineers, and mathematicians have devel­ oped refined asymptotic and numerical instruments to unravel difficulties of ever expanding complexity. Their paintings has been spurred on through rising and maturing applied sciences, basically curious about the propagation and reception of knowledge, and the effective transmission of power. The energy of this clinical box isn't waning. elevated calls for to exactly quantify, degree, and regulate the propagation and scattering of waves in more and more advanced settings pose hard medical and mathematical difficulties. those push the envelope of research and comput­ ing, simply as their forerunners did 50 years in the past. those glossy technological difficulties variety from utilizing underwater sound to watch and expect international warming, to periodically embedding phase-sensitive amplifiers in optical fibers to insure lengthy diversity electronic communication.
