Abstract : The radar cross section for scattering of electromagnetic waves by a plasma having an electron concentration proportional to 1/r squared is calculated. The exact solution is compared with the scalar approximation. It is found that the exact solution can be orders of magnitude smaller than any of the usual approximations. (Author)
