Scattering is the collision of two objects that results in a change
of trajectory and energy. For example, in particle physics, such as
electrons, photons, or neutrons are scattered off of a target
specimen, resulting in a different energy and direction. In the
field of electromagnetism, scattering is the random diffusion of
electromagnetic radiation from air masses is an aid in the
long-range sending of radio signals over geographic obstacles such
as mountains. This type of scattering, applied to the field of
acoustics, is the spreading of sound in many directions due to
irregularities in the transmission medium.
Volume I of Scattering will be devoted to basic theoretical ideas,
approximation methods, numerical techniques and mathematical
modeling. Volume II will be concerned with basic experimental
techniques, technological practices, and comparisons with relevant
theoretical work including seismology, medical applications,
meteorological phenomena and astronomy. This reference will be used
by researchers and graduate students in physics, applied physics,
biophysics, chemical physics, medical physics, acoustics,
geosciences, optics, mathematics, and engineering.
This is the first encyclopedic-range work on the topic of
scattering theory in quantum mechanics, elastodynamics, acoustics,
and electromagnetics. It serves as a comprehensive
interdisciplinary presentation of scattering and inverse scattering
theory and applications in a wide range of scientific fields, with
an emphasis, and details, up-to-date developments. Scattering also
places an emphasis on the problems that are still in active current
The first interdisciplinary reference source on scattering to
gather all world expertise in this technique
Covers the major aspects of scattering in a common language,
helping to widening the knowledge of researchers across
The list of editors, associate editors and contributors reads like
an international Who's Who in the interdisciplinary field of
