M18. Coefficient Identification Problems

Coefficient identification problems occur naturally in almost any mathematical modelling of physical phenomena. They are ill-posed and in general nonlinear. Various aspects concerning the existence and uniqueness of solution are delicate to answer. Furthermore, the stability issue and the numerical reconstruction methods are of interest.

We want to bring together experts and young researches working in this field to discuss about new results in the analysis and numerics of coefficient identification problems.
