Nonlinear integral equation methods for the reconstruction of an acoustically sound-soft obstacle

Abstract

The problem considered is that of determining the shape of a planar acoustically sound-soft obstacle from knowledge of the far-field pattern for one time-harmonic incident field. Two methods, which are based on the solution of a pair of integral equations representing the incoming wave and the far-field pattern, respectively, are proposed and investigated for finding the unknown boundary. Numerical resultsare included which show that the methods give accurate numerical approximations in relatively few iterations.
