Frédéric Molinet

Frédéric Molinet received his degree in engineering from the Ecole Centrale de Lyon and his doctorate (3e cycle) in theoretical nuclear physics from the University of Strasbourg. He was formerly involved with research into plasma physics at the Institut Henri Poincaré in Paris, before forming his own consulting company, MOTHESIM, in 1980. Dr. Molinet is the co-author for two previous books, Asymptotic Methods in Electromagnetics and Asymptotic and Hybrid Methods in Electromagnetics. He is a former president of the Waves and Fields chapter of the Société des Electriciens, Electroniciens et des Radioelectriciens (SEE). From 2004 to 2007, he was chairman of Commission B of the National Radio Science Committee of URSI. In 1990, Dr. Molinet was the recipient of the Science and Defense Award of the French Ministry of Defense.

Frederic Molinet

Covering analytical research in aerial and underwater acoustics, this new scholarly work treats the interaction of acoustic waves with obstacles which may be rigid, soft, elastic, or characterized by an impedance boundary condition. The approach is founded on asymptotic high frequency methods which are based on the concept of rays.
