Abstract : A Workshop/Symposium on Research Techniques in Wave Propagation and Scattering was held at the Ohio State University October 18-21, 1982. This workshop was co-sponsored with the generous financial support of the U.S. Army Research Office, U.S. Office of Naval Research, the Center for Welding Research, O.S.U., and the Department of Engineering Mechanics, O.S.U. The workshop format consisted of a core of a general lectures of fifty minutes duration each and several shorter contributions that were of twenty minutes duration each. In addition, there were three panel discussions. The general lectures were of an expository nature on fundamental concepts and basic analytical/numerical techniques for the solution of wave scattering and propagation problems. The speakers were noted for their contribution to these techniques and in many cases have pioneered the techniques that they elaborated upon. These lectures were invaluable to the participants since they were of a pedagogical nature and easily understood by even those not very familiar with the particular method. The written version of many of these lectures will appear in a four volume Handbook on Acoustic, Electromagnetic and Elastic Wave Scattering to be published by North Holland as a separate project.
