Paper Abstract

A new technique--the mutual interaction method (MIM)--allows computation of the exact scattering characteristics of an object near a rough surface, or any pair of scattering objects, from their individual scattering functions. MIM is well suited to numerical computation; moreover, for a class of small scattering objects near plane surfaces, analytic solutions can be found. The application of MIM to the surface scatter problem is described and illustrated.
