Description
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. The workshop will consist of 6 minicourses of three or 4 hours each addressing a broad range of the theoretical and practical issues arising in inverse problems including imaging in random media, radar imaging, thermoacoustic and photoacoustic tomography, travel time tomography and electromagnetic imaging.
