The interior transmission problem appears naturally in the scattering theory. In this paper, we construct the Green function associated to this problem. In addition, we provide point-wise estimates of this Green function similar to those known for the Green function related to the classical transmission problems. These estimates are, in particular, useful to the study of various inverse scattering problems. Here, we apply them to justify some asymptotic formulas already used for detecting partially coated dielectric mediums from far field measurements.
