# Layer Potential Techniques in Spectral Analysis

Share this page
*Habib Ammari; Hyeonbae Kang; Hyundae Lee*

Since the early part of the twentieth century,
the use of integral equations has developed into a range of tools for
the study of partial differential equations. This includes the use of
single- and double-layer potentials to treat classical boundary value
problems.

The aim of this book is to give a self-contained presentation of an
asymptotic theory for eigenvalue problems using layer potential
techniques with applications in the fields of inverse problems, band gap
structures, and optimal design, in particular the optimal design of
photonic and phononic crystals. Throughout this book, it is shown how
powerful the layer potentials techniques are for solving not only
boundary value problems but also eigenvalue problems if they are
combined with the elegant theory of Gohberg and Sigal on meromorphic
operator-valued functions. The general approach in this book is
developed in detail for eigenvalue problems for the Laplacian and the
Lamé system in the following two situations: one under variation of
domains or boundary conditions and the other due to the presence of
inclusions.

The book will be of interest to researchers and graduate students
working in the fields of partial differential equations, integral
equations, and inverse problems. Researchers in engineering and physics
may also find this book helpful.
