A solution of the ultrasonic scattering and inverse scattering problem has been obtained by solving the inhomogeneous Helmholtz wave equation by the sinc basis moment method. In this numerical study, the algorithm of S.A. Johnson and M.L. Tracy (1983) has been applied to the reconstruction of an infinite circular cylinder that is subject to an incident cylindrical wave of ultrasound and is surrounded by a homogeneous coupling medium. For weak scattering cylinders, successful reconstructions have been obtained using the known exact solution for the scattered field as the input data for the algorithm. A detailed discussion of sampling requirements for this algorithm is presented, and the threshold derived correlates well with results of a numerical study of variation of the sampling density. Effects of varying object contrast, object size, grid size, sampling density, and method of iteration are investigated. Because the algorithm is slow, optimization of computation is described.<>
