An Overview of Scattering Methods

In all of the next chapter and in large parts of the following two, we will be forced to make a long detour in order to fully lay out the details of how scattering-based numerical simulation methods are designed. In this section, we take a brief and informal look at many of the relevant ideas, while putting aside the full development until later. The reader who has some familiarity with wave digital filters and digital waveguide networks may safely skip this section.
