The functional relation between elastic total cross sections and interatomic potentials is examined. The forward scattering process is explored by the sensitivity densities δσ(E)/δV(R) and in a similar fashion inverse scattering is probed by the densities δV(R)/δσ(E). Both densities provide valuable information about the relation between structure in the cross section and potential.
