A direct and inverse scattering theory on the full line is developed for a class of first-order selfadjoint 2n×2n systems of differential equations with integrable potential matrices. Various properties of the corresponding scattering matrices including unitarity and canonical Wiener-Hopf factorization are established. The Marchenko integral equations are derived and their unique solvability is proved. The unique recovery of the potential from the solutions of the Marchenko equations is shown. In the case of rational scattering matrices, state space methods are employed to construct the scattering matrix from a reflection coefficient and to recover the potential explicitly.
