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.

MIT-France seed funding is a competitive collaborative research program ran by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Cambridge, Ma, USA). Together with E. Lima and . Weiss from the Earth and Planetary Sciences dept. at MIT, Apics obtained two-years support from the above-mentioned program to run a project entitled: “Development of Ultra-high Sensitivity Magnetometry for Analyzing Ancient Rock Magnetism”

Cyprus NF grant was obtained by N. Stylianopoulos (Univ. Cyprus) to conduct joint research with L. Baratchart, E.B. Saff (Vanderbilt Univ.) and V. Totik (Univ. Szeged, Hungary). The title of the grant is: “Orthogonal polynomials in the complex plane: distribution of zeros, strong asymptotics and shape reconstruction”.
