Develops... more...

All physicists would agree that one of the most fundamental problems of the 21st century physics is the dimensionality of the world.

This book is a new edition of a title originally published in1992. No other book has been published that treats inverse spectral and inverse scattering results by using the so called Poisson summation formula and the related study of singularities. This book presents these in a closed and comprehensive form, and the exposition is based on... more...
