Abstract: The inverse scattering is one of the most useful devices to obtain information about quantum mechanical forces. The solutions of the radial Schrödinger equation, describing mathematically the situation, behave asymptotically like sine functions with shifted phase. The sequence of these phase shifts is a central notion in scattering theory. In this talk some classical and recent results about phase shifts will be presented and some open questions will be discussed.
