M17. Parameter Identification Problems for PDEs: Theoretical and Computational Aspects

Many phenomena in real-life are modeled by partial differential equations. Roughly they illustrate the relationships between result states, processes concerning derivatives and related parameters. Nevertheless, it might happen that some models are imprecise in the practical setting: parameters such as coefficients, source terms, boundary conditions may be subject to uncertainty which must be identified from measurement data of the states.

The minisymposium is a forum for scientists to present recent results on the uniqueness, stability and convergence of regularization methods for the parameter identification problem as well as on reconstruction algorithms and experimental implementations.
