21 Aug 2006TL;DR: The mathematical theory and technology needed to understand the multiple scattering phenomenon is known as multiple scattering, and this book is the first devoted to the subject as mentioned in this paper, and the author covers a variety of techniques, describing first the single-obstacle methods and then extending them to the multiple-obsstacle case.

Abstract: The interaction of waves with obstacles is an everyday phenomenon in science and engineering, arising for example in acoustics, electromagnetism, seismology and hydrodynamics. The mathematical theory and technology needed to understand the phenomenon is known as multiple scattering, and this book is the first devoted to the subject. The author covers a variety of techniques, describing first the single-obstacle methods and then extending them to the multiple-obstacle case. A key ingredient in many of these extensions is an appropriate addition theorem: a coherent, thorough exposition of these theorems is given, and computational and numerical issues around them are explored. The application of these methods to different types of problems is also explained; in particular, sound waves, electromagnetic radiation, waves in solids and water waves. A comprehensive bibliography of some 1400 items rounds off the book, which will be an essential reference on the topic for applied mathematicians, physicists and engineers.

TL;DR: The linear theory for water waves impinging obliquely on a vertically sided porous structure is examined in this article, where the reflection and transmission coefficients are significantly altered and they are calculated using a plane-wave assumption.

Abstract: The linear theory for water waves impinging obliquely on a vertically sided porous structure is examined. For normal wave incidence, the reflection and transmission from a porous breakwater has been studied many times using eigenfunction expansions in the water region in front of the structure, within the porous medium, and behind the structure in the down-wave water region. For oblique wave incidence, the reflection and transmission coefficients are significantly altered and they are calculated here. Using a plane-wave assumption, which involves neglecting the evanescent eigenmodes that exist near the structure boundaries (to satisfy matching conditions), the problem can be reduced from a matrix problem to one which is analytic. The plane-wave approximation provides an adequate solution for the case where the damping within the structure is not too great. An important parameter in this problem is Γ 2 = ω 2 h ( s - i f )/ g , where ω is the wave angular frequency, h the constant water depth, g the acceleration due to gravity, and s and f are parameters describing the porous medium. As the friction in the porous medium, f , becomes non-zero, the eigenfunctions differ from those in the fluid regions, largely owing to the change in the modal wavenumbers, which depend on Γ 2 . For an infinite number of values of ΓF 2 , there are no eigenfunction expansions in the porous medium, owing to the coalescence of two of the wavenumbers. These cases are shown to result in a non-separable mathematical problem and the appropriate wave modes are determined. As the two wavenumbers approach the critical value of Γ 2 , it is shown that the wave modes can swap their identity.

TL;DR: In this article, the authors consider methods for solving the transmission problem using a single integral equation over S for a single unknown function, and derive four different integral equations, using a hybrid of the direct (Green's theorem) and indirect (layer ansatz) methods, and give conditions for the unique-solvability of each and for the subsequent construction of the solution.

Abstract: The transmission problem, namely scattering of time-harmonic waves in a compressible fluid by a fluid inclusion with different material properties, is usually formulated as a pair of coupled boundary integral equations over the interface S between the inclusion and the exterior fluid. In this paper, however,we consider methods for solving the transmission problem using a single integral equation over S for a single unknown function. In fact, we derive four different integral equations, using a hybrid of the direct (Green’s theorem) and indirect (layer ansatz) methods, and give conditions for the unique-solvability of each and for the subsequent construction of the solution to the transmission problem. Some of our single integral equations are Fredholm integral equations of the second kind with weakly-singular kernels. Thus, these equations, all of which appear to be new, are attractive computationally.

TL;DR: To the best of our knowledge, there is only one application of mathematical modelling to face recognition as mentioned in this paper, and it is a face recognition problem that scarcely clamoured for attention before the computer age but, having surfaced, has attracted the attention of some fine minds.

Abstract: to be done in this area. Face recognition is a problem that scarcely clamoured for attention before the computer age but, having surfaced, has involved a wide range of techniques and has attracted the attention of some fine minds (David Mumford was a Fields Medallist in 1974). This singular application of mathematical modelling to a messy applied problem of obvious utility and importance but with no unique solution is a pretty one to share with students: perhaps, returning to the source of our opening quotation, we may invert Duncan's earlier observation, 'There is an art to find the mind's construction in the face!'.
