  • Inverse scattering problem, uniqueness, sound-hard, polyhedral obstacle


We consider the inverse acoustic scattering problem of determining a sound-hard obstacle by far field measurements. It is proved that a polyhedral scatterer in $R^n, nge 2$, consisting of finitely many solid polyhedra, is uniquely determined by a single incoming plane wave.
