Paper Abstract

The problem of scattering from a random rough surface is a difficult one, and exact solutions do not exist. In an absence of such solutions, various approximations schemes are used, the two longstanding and widely used approx- imations being the small perturbation method (SPM) and the Kirchhoff approximation (KA). Other schemes have been proposed, but none render these two entirely redundant. Here we concentrate on SPM.
