The purpose of the Reverse Scattering Perturbation (RSP) method [14] is to replace the inversion of a large matrix in (48) by a perturbation expansion over orders of scattering. In our version of RSP [13] we take into account that forward scatterings may not be treated as weak events, but must always be included exactly: only back-scatterings are assumed to be weak. This feature requires a logical ordering of the subplanes in terms of increasing distance from the surface.
