Profs. Cakoni and Monk receive IMA funding for the international conference "Novel Directions in Inverse Scattering"
The Institute for Mathematics and its Applications (IMA) has awarded funding to sponsor the international conference "Novel Directions in Inverse Scattering: Honoring David Colton" which takes place at the University of Delaware, July 29 - August 2, 2013. The conference will celebrate the scientific accomplishments of Unidel Professor of Mathematics David Colton. The conference is organized by F. Cakoni (U of Delaware), L. Borcea (Rice University), H. Haddar (Ecole Polytechnique) and P. Monk (U of Delaware). The University of Delaware is an IMA Participating Institution.
This conference will be a scientific gathering of international experts as well as junior researchers in the area of inverse scattering theory with focus in novel techniques for solving inverse scattering problems. The goal of this conference is to be a forum for the exchange of hot theoretical results, new trends, open problems and future directions in the area of inverse scattering. Applicability of the mathematics extends to many real life needs including medical imaging, non-destructive testing, underground imaging and oil exploration, cloaking and enhanced visibility.
