The Linear Sampling Method in Inverse Electromagnetic ScatteringThe Linear Sampling Method in Inverse Electromagnetic Scattering

Fioralba Cakoni, David Colton, and Peter Monk



CBMS-NSF Regional Conference Series in Applied Mathematics 80

The linear sampling method is the oldest and most developed of the qualitative methods in inverse scattering theory. It is based on solving a linear integral equation and then using the equation’s solution as an indicator function for the determination of the support of the scattering object. This book describes the linear sampling method for a variety of electromagnetic scattering problems. It presents uniqueness theorems and the derivation of various inequalities on the material properties of the scattering object from a knowledge of the far field pattern of the scattered wave. Also covered are
• the approximation properties of Herglotz wave functions;
• the behavior of solutions to the interior transmission problem, a novel interior boundary value problem; and
• numerical examples of the inversion scheme.
