# On spherical‐wave scattering by a spherical scatterer and related near‐field inverse problems

@inproceedings{Athanasiadis2001OnSS, title={On spherical‐wave scattering by a spherical scatterer and related near‐field inverse problems}, author={C. Athanasiadis and Paul A. Martin and Ioannis G. Stratis}, year={2001} }

A spherical acoustic wave is scattered by a bounded obstacle. A generalization of the 'optical theorem' (which relates the scattering cross-section to the far-field pattern in the forward direction for an incident plane wave) is proved. For a spherical scatterer, low-frequency results are obtained by approximating the known exact solution (separation of variables). In particular, a closed-form approximation for the scattered wavefield at the source of the incident spherical wave is obtained… CONTINUE READING
