# Direct and inverse time-harmonic elastic scattering from point-like and extended obstacles

@article{Hu2020DirectAI, title={Direct and inverse time-harmonic elastic scattering from point-like and extended obstacles}, author={Guanghui Hu and Andrea Mantile and Mourad Sini and Tao Yin}, journal={Inverse Problems \& Imaging}, year={2020} }

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…

It is shown that the scattered field is a sum of two contributions: one is due to the diffusion by the extended obstacle, and the other arises from the linear combination of the interactions between the point-like obstacles and the interaction with the extended one.
