In this paper, we analyze the subspace migration that occurs in limited-view inverse scattering problems. Based on the structure of singular vectors associated with the nonzero singular values of the multi-static response matrix, we establish a relationship between the subspace migration imaging function and Bessel functions of integer order of the first kind. The revealed structure and numerical examples demonstrate why subspace migration is applicable for the imaging of small scatterers in limited-view inverse scattering problems.
