Inverse problems aimed at locating cracks and voids inside a dielectric medium by means of electromagnetic waves involve knowledge of transmission eigenvalues. The subject has been actively
The Interior Transmission Problem for Regions with Cavities
The Fredholm property is established for the interior transmission problem in the case when the inhomogeneous medium has cavities, i.e., regions in which the index of refraction is the same as the host medium.

Transmission eigenvalues and non-destructive testing of anisotropic magnetic materials with voids
In this paper we consider the transmission eigenvalue problem corresponding to the scattering problem for an anisotropic magnetic materials with voids, i.e. subregions with refractive index the same
Mixed Methods for the Helmholtz Transmission Eigenvalues
This paper applies the Ciarlet--Raviart mixed finite element method to the Helmholtz transmission eigenvalue problem which is quadratic and quadratically complex.
Transmission eigenvalues for dielectric objects on a perfect conductor
We present a new interior transmission problem arising when a dielectric structure sits on a perfect conducting plane. The problem has mixed boundary conditions. We discuss the forward problem, and
The Existence of an Infinite Discrete Set of Transmission Eigenvalues
We prove the existence of an infinite discrete set of transmission eigenvalues corresponding to the scattering problem for isotropic and anisotropic inhomogeneous media for both the Helmholtz and
Counting function for interior transmission eigenvalues
In this paper we give results on the counting function associated with the interior transmission eigenvalues. For a complex refraction index we estimate of the counting function by Ctn. In the case


Recent Developments in Inverse Acoustic Scattering Theory
We survey some of the highlights of inverse scattering theory as it has developed over the last 15 years, with emphasis on uniqueness theorems and reconstruction algorithms for time harmonic acoustic
On the use of transmission eigenvalues to estimate the index of refraction from far field data
We consider the scattering of time harmonic electromagnetic plane waves by a bounded inhomogeneous medium and show that under certain assumptions a lower bound on the index of refraction can be

The interior transmission problem
The interior transmission problem is a boundary value problem that plays a basic role in inverse scattering theory but unfortunately does not seem to be included in any existing theory in partial
An application of the reciprocity gap functional to inverse scattering theory
A method is given for determining the shape of an object from the Cauchy data of the total field measured on the boundary of a domain containing the object in its interior. An application is given to
Analysis of two linear sampling methods applied to electromagnetic imaging of buried objects
We investigate two imaging methods to detect buried scatterers from electromagnetic measurements at a fixed frequency. The first one is the classical linear sampling method that requires the
