Paper Abstract

The Resonance Scattering Theory (RST) was developed for acoustic scattering in 1977 and shortly thereafter was extended to the resonance scattering of elastic waves, and later on to the scattering of electromagnetic waves (radar). Resonance amplitudes in acoustic scattering from submerged elastic objects, which the RST describes in a mathematical fashion, are a dominant feature in the acoustic echoes which can be used to effect an `acoustic resonance spectroscopy' (as pointed out by Andre Derem). Such a spectroscopy can be used for characterizing the target as to its size, shape, and composition, and can ultimately lead to a procedure or a mechanism for (automatic) target recognition.
