Inverse Problems and Applications August 16, 2010 to December 17, 2010
Organizers Liliana Borcea (Rice University), Maarten V. de Hoop (Purdue University), Carlos E. Kenig (University of Chicago), Peter Kuchment (Texas A&M University), Lassi Päivärinta (University of Helsinki, Finland), Gunther Uhlmann* (University of Washington), and Maciej Zworski (University of California, Berkeley)
Inverse Problems are problems where causes for a desired or an observed effect are to be determined. They lie at the heart of scientific inquiry and technological development. Applications include a number of medical as
well as other imaging techniques, location of oil and mineral deposits in the earth's substructure, creation of astrophysical images from telescope data, finding cracks and interfaces within materials, shape optimization,
model identification in growth processes and, more recently, modelling in the life sciences. During the last 10 years or so there has been significant developments both in the mathematical theory and applications of inverse problems. The purpose of the program would be to bring together people working on different aspects of the field, to appraise the current status of development and to encourage interaction between mathematicians and scientists and engineers working directly with the applications.
