Emerging Methods in Electromagnetic and Acoustic Scattering
(Part I of II)

3:45 PM-5:45 PM
Room 242

This minisymposium will highlight a number of methods and applications that have emerged recently in the fields of electromagnetic and acoustic scattering. The speakers will discuss recent advances in finite difference and integral equation solvers, fast algorithms, high order techniques, inversion of scattering data in various settings, and new methods specific to particular applications.

For Part II, see CM8.
