 This book contains the proceedings of an AMSIMSSIAM Summer Institute on Inverse Scattering and Applications, held in Amherst, Massachusetts, in June 1990. The papers cover the current state of the art in inverse conductivity problems, applications of inverse scattering theory to integrable systems, threedimensional inverse scattering, inverse monodromy problems, and nonlinear waves, among other topics. Intended for researchers working in inverse scattering theory, inverse conductance problems, and completely integrable systems, this book presents results by some of the major experts in the field.
