The paper considers acoustic wave scattering by inhomogeneities with a small wave size using the Green’s function apparatus, which makes it possible universally to take into account both the refraction and density components of an inhomogeneity. Estimates for the multipole components of a field scattered by a nonresonance inhomogeneity are presented. For an inhomogeneity with small dimensions, it suffices to consider only monopole and dipole scattering. These conclusions are confirmed by an analysis of the field scattered by a circular cylinder with a small wave radius. The results are used to numerically simulate a Lippmann–Schwinger equation. The form of the discretized matrix Green’s function for identical values of the spatial arguments is presented. This makes it possible to take into account multiple scattering processes within a discretization element with a small wave size. Its use automatically fulfills the relations between the phase and amplitude of secondary acoustic field sources.
