Approximate Scattering Models in Inverse Scattering: Past, Present, and Future
There exist a number of applications in industry and the military that involve what is generally known as inverse scattering. Examples include radar target detection and estimation, radar imaging, nondestructive evaluation (NDE), biological and geophysical imaging, and structure determination using X-rays and electron beams. Although the applications appear very different they all involve estimating (reconstructing) the properties of a scatterer from scattered field data and have a common underlying mathematical structure.
