This classic book provides a rigorous treatment of the RieszÐFredholm theory of compact operators in dual systems, followed by a derivation of the jump relations and mapping properties of scalar and vector potentials in spaces of continuous and Hlder continuous functions. These results are then used to study scattering problems for the Helmholtz and Maxwell equations.
