Inverse Scattering for the Magnetic Schrödinger Operator on Surfaces with Euclidean Ends

  • Valter Pohjola
  • Leo TzouEmail author


We prove a fixed frequency inverse scattering result for the magnetic Schrödinger operator (or connection Laplacian) on surfaces with Euclidean ends. We show that, under suitable decaying conditions, the scattering matrix for the operator determines both the gauge class of the connection and the zeroth order potential.
