The inverse source problem for a monochromeatic source imbedded in a nonabsorbing inhomogeneous medium is investigated within the framework of the reduced scalar wave equation. The Porter-Bojarski integral equation previously formulated for sources imbedded in vacuum is generalized to this case, as are the class of nonradiating and minimum-energy sources considered in Part I [ J. Opt. Soc. Am. 72, 327 ( 1982)].
