Abstract

A method for determining the internal structure of a localized scattering potential from field measurements performed outside the scattering volume is developed by using the Rytov approximation. The theory is compared with the inverse-scattering method within the Born and eikonal approximations and found to reduce to these methods in the weak-scattering (Born) and very-short-wavelength (eikonal) limits.
