The dissertation considers an inverse acoustic obstacle scattering problem in which the incident field is generated by a point source and the measurements are made in the near field region.

Three methods to solve the problem of reconstructing the support of an unknown sound-soft or sound-hard scatterer from the near field measurements are presented. Methods are modifications of Kirsch factorization and modified Kirsch factorization methods. Numerical examples are given to show the practicality of one of the methods.
