SUMMARY

In inverse problems, the aim is to obtain, via a mathematical model, information on quantities that are not directly observable but rather depend on other observable quantities. Inverse problems are encountered in such diverse areas of application as medical imaging, remote sensing, material testing, geosciences and financing. It has become evident that new ideas coming from differential geometry and modern analysis are needed to tackle even some of the most classical inverse problems. This book contains a collection of presentations, written by leading specialists, aiming to give the reader up-to-date tools for understanding the current developments in the field
