Inverse Problems: Theory, Algorithms, and Applications

Assad Oberai, Paul Barbone, Wilkins Aquino, Isaac Harari

Inverse problems are prevalent in many science and engineering applications. They present significant challenges that have only been partially addressed to date. The goal of this minisymposium is to bring together the state of the art in theory, algorithms, and applications of inverse problems in mechanics and other areas of science and engineering. Topics may include, but are not limited to

  • -  Novel inverse problem formulations
  • -  Novel algorithms for inverse and ill-posed problems
  • -  Advanced discretization strategies for inverse problems
  • -  Regularization of ill-posed inverse problems
  • -  Probabalistic approaches and uncertainty quantification
  • -  Applications in domains of: inverse scattering, seismology, biomechanics, medical imaging, optimal mechanical design, optimal experimental design, and nondestructive evaluation, are encouraged.
