This paper concerns the time-harmonic direct and inverse elastic scattering by an extended rigid elastic body surrounded by a finite number of point-like obstacles. We first justify the point-interaction model for the Lame operator within the singular perturbation approach. For a general family of pointwise-supported singular perturbations, including anisotropic and non-local interactions, we derive an explicit representation of the scattered field. In the case of isotropic and local point…

Fast inverse elastic scattering of multiple particles in three dimensions

Many applications require recovering the geometric information of multiple elastic particles based on the scattering information. In this paper, we consider the inverse time-harmonic elastic

Selective focusing of elastic cavities based on the time reversal far field model

This paper is concerned with the inverse time harmonic elastic scattering of multiple small and well-resolved cavities in two dimensions. We extend the so-called DORT method to the inverse elastic



Elastic scattering by finitely many point-like obstacles

This paper is concerned with the time-harmonic elastic scattering by a finite number N of point-like obstacles in Rn (n = 2, 3). We analyze the N-point interactions model in elasticity and derive the

We investigate the far-field operator for the scattering of time-harmonic elastic plane waves by either a rigid body, a cavity, or an absorbing obstacle. Extending results of Colton & Kress for

The far-field operator for penetrable and absorbing obstacles in 2D inverse elastic scattering

In this paper, the far-field operator for scattering from a penetrable elastic body or an absorbing obstacle in two-dimensional linear elasticity is considered. The longitudinal and transverse

Inverse scattering by point-like scatterers in the Foldy regime

The scattering by point-like scatterers is described in the Born, Foldy and the intermediate regimes. We explain why the Foldy regime is, rigorously, a natural model for taking into account the

This paper is concerned with the inverse obstacle scattering problem for time harmonic plane waves. We derive a factorization of the far field operator F in the form and prove that the ranges of and

The purpose of this work is to find the time dependent distributions of directions and positions of a particle that undergoes multiple elastic scattering. The angular cross section is given and the
