## Abstract

An exact theory of the inverse scattering problems related to cylindrical bodies buried in a slab is established in two-dimensional scalar case. The theory dwells on two functional equations interrelating the outgoing wave solutions of the wave equation, which can be observed physically, with incoming wave solutions that are physically meaningless and irrealizable. One of these functional equations involves the measured radiation pattern in its kernel (material relation) while the other is independent of the measured data (universal relation). To establish the material relation one has to make far-field measurements with various incidence angles at various observation points and frequencies. The universal relation which guarantees some analytical properties of the field function results in a Stieltjes type integral equation. By solving these equations one gets the location, shape and permittivity of the inaccessible body. When the material of the half-space below the slab is made identical to that of the slab, then the results are reduced to that of the bodies buried in a half-space.
