The inverse scattering problem we consider is to determine the surface impedance of a three-dimensional obstacle of known shape from a knowledge of the far-field patterns of the scattered fields corresponding to many incident time-harmonic plane acoustic waves. We solve this problem by using both the methods of Kirsch-Kress and Colton-Monk.
