Introduction on inverse problems : General introduction (part 1/2)

By Michel Cristofol

Appears in collection : Michel Cristofol: Introduction on inverse problems

The goal of this course is to give a short survey on the domain of Inverse Problems. After a general introduction I will focus on the parabolic operators and I will present around the same toy problem different technics:
- the Dirichlet to Neumann methodology (see [1]), - the Carleman inequalities approach (see [2]),
- and I will conclude with a recent technic using pointwise observations. (see [3]).
