Abstract : We consider the inverse scattering problem consisting in the identification of both an obstacle and two functional coefficients of a generalized boundary condition prescribed on its boundary, from far--fields due to several plane waves. After proving a uniqueness result for such inverse problem, we define and compute appropriate derivative of the far--field with respect to an obstacle with non constant impedances. A steepest descent method is then applied to retrieve both the obstacle and the functional impedances from the measured far--fields. The feasability of the method is demonstrated with the help of some 2D numerical experiments.
