Diffraction effects in semiclassical scattering by H. M Nussenzveig( Book )

14 editions published between 1991 and 2006 in English and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Critical effects in semiclassical scattering, in which the standard approximations break down, are associated with forward peaking, rainbows, glories, orbiting and resonances. Besides giving rise to beautiful optical effects in the atmosphere, critical effects have important applications in many areas of physics. However, their interpretation and accurate treatment is difficult. This book, based on the Elliott Montroll Lectures, given at the University of Rochester, deals with the theory of these critical effects. After a preliminary chapter in which the problem of critical effects is posed, the next three chapters on coronae, rainbows and glories are written so as to be accessible to a broader audience. The main part of the book then describes the results obtained from the application of complex angular momentum techniques to scattering by homogeneous spheres. These techniques lead to practically usable asymptotic approximations, and to new physical insights into critical effects. A new conceptual picture of diffraction, regarded as a tunnelling effect, emerges. The final two chapters contain brief descriptions of applications to a broad range of fields, including linear and nonlinear optics, radiative transfer, astronomy, acoustics, seismology, atomic, nuclear and particle physics

High-frequency scattering by an impenetrable sphere by H. M Nussenzveig( Book )

3 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The scattering of a scalar plane wave by a totally reflecting sphere (hard-core potential) at high frequencies is treated by a modified Watson transformation. The behavior of the solution both in the near and far regions of space is discussed, as well as the accuracy and domain of applicability of the WKB approximation and classical diffraction theory. It is shown that different transformations are required in the forward and backward half-spaces, and corresponding integral representations for the primary wave are derived. The transformations are rigorously proved and the convergence of the residue series is discussed. In the shadow region, the physical interpretation of the complex angular momentum poles in terms of surface waves is in agreement with Keller's geometrical theory of diffraction. In the lit region, sufficiently far from the shadow boundary, the WKB expansion for the wave function is confirmed up to the second order. On the surface of the sphere, Kirchhoff's approximation is accurate, except in the penumbra region, where the behavior is described by Fock's function. The diffraction effects in the neighborhood of the shadow boundary are investigated and the corrections to classical diffraction theory are obtained
