    Scattering theory is discussed for long-range systems around threshold, taking into account explicitly the possibility of zero-energy eigenstates of the underlying Schrödinger Hamiltonian. Low-energy expansions are derived for the scattering amplitude in the different cases. The...

    Properties of idealized, two-dimensional current distributions on circular loops are investigated analytically via the solution of a constrained optimization problem. The directivity in the far field is maximized under a fixed C=N/T, where N is the integral of the square of the current magnitude...

    We study the inverse problem for a dispersive stratified chiral slab. The problem is treated as an analytic factorization problem in the complex plane of frequencies. Emphasis is made on the reconstruction of the spatial dependence of the medium parameters, whereas the frequency dependence is...
