In this paper we explain the linear sampling method and its performances under various scattering conditions by means of an analysis of the far-field equation based on the principle of energy conservation. Specifically, we consider the conservation of energy along the flow strips of the Poynting vector associated with the scattered field whose far-field pattern is one of the two terms in the far-field equation. The behavior of these flow lines is numerically investigated and theoretically…

This paper analyzes how average power fluxes are carried throughout the host medium by the flow tubes of radiating fields, and shows that the far-field equation, which is the core of the linear sampling method, can be regarded as a physical constraint linking the power flux of the scattered wave with that of the field radiated by a point source.
