This book is an overview of scattering theory. The author shows how this theory provides a parametrization of the continuous spectrum of an elliptic operator on a complete manifold with uniform structure at infinity. In the first two lectures the author describes the simple and fundamental case of the Laplacian on Euclidean space to introduce the theory's basic framework. In the next three lectures, he outlines various results on Euclidean scattering, and the methods used to prove them. In the last three lectures he extends these ideas to non-Euclidean settings.
