Paper Abstract

Phase space and functional (path) integral methods, so successfully applied today in quantum and statistical physics, are applied to both direct and inverse wave propagation problems in extended inhomogeneous environments. The modeling is provided by the n-dimensional scalar Helmholtz equation. Both solution representations and numerical algorithms are presented.
