Sampling method for sign changing contrast

Abstract : We extend the applicability of the Generalized Linear Sampling Method (GLSM) [2] and the Factorization Method (FM)[14] to the case of inhomogeneities where the contrast change sign strictly inside the obstacle. Both methods give an exact characterization of the target shapes in term of the fareld operator (at a xed frequency). One of the key ingredient to prove this exact characterization is based on a factorization of the fareld operator. This factorization involves three operators which should exhibit specic properties. This paper is concerned with the extension of the coercivity property required on one of them to the case of sign changing contrast both for isotropic and anisotropic scatters with possibly dierent supports for the isotropic and anisotropic parts. We fnally validate the method through some numerical tests in two dimensions.
