INVERSE PROBLEMS IN THE APPLIED SCIENCES AND RECOVERY PROBLEMS FROM
By Dr. M. Zuhair Nashed, Professor of Mathematics and of Electrical Engineering,
University of Delaware, USA.
Many problems in applied mathematics, the physical/natural sciences, and
engineering can be classified as direct, inverse, or identification problems.
In a direct problem, we are given a cause or input to a system
and we are asked to determine the effect or output. In an inverse problem,
we are given an observed output and we want to determine an
input (or inputs) that produced the observed output. The purpose of this
short course is to provide an introduction of these two important areas
and discuss dilemmas and methodologies for solving inverse problems and
recovery problems from partial or indirect information.
