    Project Acronym : iproblems

    Project Title : Inverse Problems

    Duration : 48 months (2013-2017)

    Abstract: Inverse problems is a field in full expansion as shown by the numerous resident programs hosted in the different research institutes throughout the world, several striking breakthroughs achieved in the recent years and the flow of PhD students attracted by the subject. Strong groups and schools have appeared in Finland, the United States and Japan. In spite of its history in Analysis and Partial differential equations (in particular in microlocal analysis and control theory, both fields having strong interactions with Inverse Problems), the emergence of an organised group of mathematicians interested in the theoretical aspects of inverse problems has not yet occured in France. The ambition of this proposal is to structure a core of analysts with a strong interest in this field, to help them investigate several central questions related to geometric and analytic inverse problems, and to favor interactions between them, as well as with foreign partners and experts in the field.

    Inverse problems deal with the recovery of an unknown quantity, typically a coefficient in a partial differential equation, from knowledge of specific measurements, for instance the Cauchy data on the solutions of the given equation. They are motivated by applications to Physical Sciences but give rise to many interesting and challenging mathematical problems which lie at the crossroad of analysis (partial differential equations, harmonic and microlocal analysis, control theory, etc.) and geometry (Riemannian and Lorentzian geometries). This project mainly focuses on Calderón’s inverse conductivity problem and other closely related geometric and analytic problems. In particular, it aims at investigating identifiability issues for anisotropic problems, but also in the case where only partial data is available, as well as stability issues for those problems. It will also consider injectivity problems on geodesic ray transforms.
