Inria Associate Teams

  • Title: Inverse Magnetization Problems IN GEosciences.

  • Inria principal investigator: Laurent Baratchart

  • International Partner (Institution - Laboratory - Researcher):

    • MIT - Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences (United States) - Benjamin Weiss

  • Duration: 2013 - 2015

  • See details at : http://www-sop.inria.fr/apics/IMPINGE/

  • The purpose of the associate team IMPINGE is to develop efficient algorithms to recover the magnetization distribution of rock slabs from measurements of the magnetic field above the slab using a SQUID microscope (developed at MIT). The US team also involves a group at Vanderbilt Univ.

Informal International Partners

As mentioned in Sections  5.6 and  6.1.1 , a cooperation with the German firm BESA (http://www.besa.de/ ) has started this year, which includes Athena Team (Inria Sophia-Antipolis-Méditerranée) and Centre de Mathématiques Appliquées of École des Mines de Paris. It is expected to be formalized soon, so as to include several developments of the software FindSources3D as well as a co-advised PhD.
