Scattering Amplitude and Its Properties
The problem of calculating the wave scattering from the rough and plane in average boundary is formulated in the present chapter. Such a boundary either divides two homogeneous half-spaces or bounds only one of them. The waves propagating in these media can be scalar or multicomponent (possessing polarization). The most natural language describing scattering processes is an amplitude of scattering (SA) the plane waves into each other. Using SA instead of Green’s function is more preferable in many relations. Applications of SA in the problems of wave scattering from rough surfaces is well known; Waterman [2.1] was one of the first to apply it systematically.
