“… Überall's work in acoustic and electromagnetic scattering has evoked much interest, in the US as well as abroad, because of its possible practical applications, as well as the theoretical understanding. Many collaborators have been inspired by it, and have now contributed to this volume. The book is an excellent contribution to the literature of Acoustics and Wave Propagation. Professor Guran is to be congratulated for organizing and editing this volume.”Prof. Hans A Bethe
“This highly interesting collection of papers makes a valuable addition to the acoustics literature.”Applied Acoustics
“… This is an impressive collection of 45 research and review chapters involving 78 authors. Taking into account the high educational quality and research value of this set of books, it is recommended for purchase by libraries that serves research programs involved with acoustic scattering related to underwater and ultrasonics.”Professor Philip Marston
