"A New Formalism for Electromagnetic Scattering in Complex Geometry"

Leslie Greengard
Courant Institute
New York University

Time & Location:
Thursday, Feb. 25, at 4:00 pm at Sieg Hall 134

Abstract:
We will describe some recent, elementary results in the theory of
electromagnetic scattering. There are two classical approaches that we
will review - one based on the vector and scalar potential and
applicable in arbitrary geometry, and one based on two scalar
potentials (due to Lorenz, Debye and Mie), valid only in the exterior
of a sphere. In extending the Lorenz-Debye-Mie approach to arbitrary
geometry, we have encountered
some new mathematical questions involving differential geometry,
partial differential equations and numerical analysis. This is joint
work with Charlie Epstein.
