The utilization of the Siegert resonant states as a natural basis for the scattering process has been constrained by the lack of a convergent superposition formula. This paper presents such an expansion of the exact scattering wavefunction over the s-wave Siegert resonant states for finite range potentials. Any integral property of the scattering wavefunction can then be calculated from the resonances.
