The method of difference potentials (MDP) was proposed in [1]-[8] and sigยญ nificantly developed in [9]-[101] and some other works. The present book describes the current state of the art in the method of difference potentials and is a revised and essentially supplemented version of the author's first book devoted to this method, which was published by "Nauka" in 1987 [100]. This monograph deals with the MDP apparatus and several of its appliยญ cations, particularly to the following problems: 1. the numerical solution ofinterior and exterior boundary-value problems for systems of partial differential equations; 2. the construction of conditions at the artificial boundary ofthe compuยญ tational domain, which equivalently replace the equations and conditions at infinity in stationary problems of gas flowpast immersed bodies as well as in some other steady-state problems; 3. the spectral approach to the construction of artificial boundary conยญ ditions replacing the equations of propagation of physical fields outside the computational domain containing perturbation sources; 4. the construction of artificial boundary conditions on the boundary of the computational domain for numerically solving the scattering problems in large time in a neighborhood of a fixed or a moving scatterer; 5. the statement and solution of stationary mathematical problems of the active shielding of a given subdomain from the influence of perturbation sources located outside the screened subdomain
