AbstractTransmission eigenvalues have important applications in inverse scattering theory. For example, they can be used to obtain the index of refraction of the scattering target. Since the problem is non-selfadjoint, classical methods result in non-Hermitian matrix eigenvalue problems. In this talk, we discuss two numerical methods to compute transmission eigenvalues. Then we show that these methods can be integrated into algorithms for the estimation of the index of refraction using near or far field data
