"Computing solutions of inverse scattering problems"
The problem of determining a potential in the Schrödinger
equation from knowledge of scattering data is a classical problem in
quantum theory, and arises also in a number of other application areas.
In this talk I will review some precise statements and results about
this problem, and then discuss some more recent progress, with emphasis
on numerical methods, especially when bound states are present.
