## A quasi-reversibility approach to solve the inverse obstacle problem

 1 Laboratoire POEMS, ENSTA, 32, Boulevard Victor, 75739 Paris Cedex 15, France

Received  May 2009 Revised  November 2009 Published  July 2010

We introduce a new approach based on the coupling of the method of quasi-reversibility and a simple level set method in order to solve the inverse obstacle problem with Dirichlet boundary condition. We provide a theoretical justification of our approach and illustrate its feasibility with the help of numerical experiments in $2D$.
