The special issue of the Journal of Quantitative Spectroscopy and Radiative Transfer (JQSRT) dedicated to Peter Waterman is now available.

Peter Waterman (1928–2012) is the creator of the T-matrix method and one of the pioneers of the theory of multiple scattering of electromagnetic and acoustic waves by multi-particle systems. To commemorate his landmark contributions to science and his profound and lasting impact on JQSRT, a special issue of JQSRT titled “Peter C. Waterman and his scientific legacy” has been published.

A citation from the introducing article:
"The special issue opens with a paper intended to summarize Peter Waterman's life and scientific accomplishments. It also tells the story of a previously unpublished manuscript of 1964 in which John Fikioris and Peter Waterman had anticipated what is now known as the superposition
T-matrix method or the generalized Mie theory. After almost 50 years, this prophetic paper has finally found its true home in the special issue dedicated to one of its authors."

Additionally, the issue includes

  • actual theoretical and applied papers related to or based on the T-matrix method and its computer implementations,
  • papers on the theory of multiple scattering of waves and its applications,
  • papers analyzing various aspects of the T-matrix method and its relation to other theoretical methodologies.
