**An Introduction to Microlocal Analysis**

by Richard B. Melrose, Gunther Uhlmann

**Publisher**: MIT 2008**Number of pages**: 182

**Description**:

One of the origins of scattering theory is the study of quantum mechanical systems, generally involving potentials. The scattering theory for perturbations of the flat Laplacian is discussed with the initial approach being via the solution of the Cauchy problem for the corresponding perturbed wave equation.
