The authors consider the inverse problem of determining a rigid inclusion inside an isotropic elastic body \(\Omega\), from a single measurement of traction and displacement taken on the boundary of \(\Omega\). For this severely ill-posed problem they prove uniqueness and a conditional stability estimate of log-log type.
