Local stability for soft obstacles by a single measurement

1. 

RICAM, Altenbergerstrasse 69, A4040, Linz, Austria, Austria

Received  October 2007 Revised  March 2008 Published  April 2008

We consider an inverse scattering problem arising in target identification. We prove a local stability result of logarithmic type for the determination of a sound soft obstacle from the far field measurements associated to one single incident wave.
