A review of anomalous resonance, its associated cloaking, and superlensing
Comptes Rendus. Physique, Volume 21 (2020) no. 4-5, pp. 409-423.

We review a selected history of anomalous resonance, cloaking due to anomalous resonance, cloaking due to complementary media, and superlensing.

Nous passons en revue quelques faits saillant de l’historique de la résonance anormale, de l’invisibilité associée à la résonance anormale, et celle associée aux milieux complémentaires et de la super-résolution.
