In modern society different trends are recognized in the usage of the available electromagnetic spectrum. One can think of a wireless communication or transport of (digital) information. The density of such applications is increasing rapidly. Obtaining electromagnetic compatibility and/or reducing electromagnetic interference sometimes seems to be an impossible task. Another trend is found in electromagnetic inverse scattering and profiling. For example, this development is used in the detection and classification of land mines and other unexploded ordnance. Ragarding electromagnetic inversion, one can also think of medical applications such as tomography or the detection of defects in metallic heart valves.
