Summary:In this book, mathematicians, engineers, physicists, and materials scientists will learn how to create material with a desired refraction coefficient. For example, how to create material with negative refraction or with desired wave-focusing properties. The methods for creating these materials are based on the many-body wave scattering theory developed by the author. The book offers new analytical formulas that allow one to calculate acoustic and electromagnetic waves, scattered by one and many small impedance bodies of an arbitrary shape under various boundary conditions. Equations for the effective (self-consistent) field in media consisting of many small impedance particles are derived. Numerical methods for solving many-body wave scattering problems are developed for small impedance scatterers.
