MS 14: Theory and numerical methods for inverse problems and tomography

Thu, 30 March, 2017, 16:30–18:30, Room: SP2 416


Michael V. Klibanov


The Radon transform (1917) represents the most spectacular success of the entire theory of Inverse Problems. Still, the theory of Inverse Problems needs to be developed further in order to satisfy those needs of science and engineering to which the Radon transform cannot be applied. Along with the theory computational method for Inverse Problems are very important ones for practical solutions of these problems.
The goal of this minisimposium is to bring together experts from various universities, who will present their recent results in both the theory and computations of various inverse problems. In particular, some of these results are closely related to the Radon transform.
