M12. Electrical Impedance Tomography: Theory and Applications

Electrical impedance tomography (EIT) is an imaging modality that consists in the determination of the electrical conductivity distribution inside a body from current and voltage measurements on its boundary. Applications include medical imaging, nondestructive testing and geophysical prospecting. Its mathematical formulation was proposed by A.P. Calderon in 1980 and it has triggered a huge amount of research since then. On the theoretical side, the main issue has been to prove uniqueness of the related inverse problem, namely, the injectivity of the measurement or forward map. Concerning applications, EIT faces major numerical hurdles, since the problem is severely ill-posed. In order to mitigate this instability, strategies ranging from regularization methods to compressed sensing and machine learning have been employed.

In this minisymposium, we are gathering experts of EIT and of the Calderon's problem to share recent theoretical and numerical/applied insights.
