MAT-62007 Inverse Problems, 5 cr


Suitable for postgraduate studies.


Mikko Kaasalainen


Examples of inverse problems include medical imaging (CT, MRI), underground prospecting for ores using electrical measurements, recovering the shape of an asteroid from lightcurve observations, and sharpening a blurred photograph. These problems are sensitive to measurement errors: straightforward inversion attempts lead to failure. Therefore spezialized solution methods are needed. This course gives an overview of classical and modern solution methods for inverse problems. Both theory and computer implementation are discussed, and the methods are demonstrated with practical inverse problems involving measured data.
