M4: Modern Challenges in Inverse Problems Including Boundary Rigidity, Microlocal Analysis and Cloaking

Minisymposium dedicated to the 70th anniversary of an outstanding expert in inverse problems, Walker Family Endowed Professor of Mathematics University of Washington, Gunther Uhlmann

Professor Gunther Uhlmann has made fundamental contributions for decades to microlocal analysis and applications, the solution of important inverse problems including Electrical Impedance Tomography (EIT) also called Calderon's problem, travel time tomography, also called boundary rigidity and lens rigidity, integral geometry, and inverse problems arising in general relativity. He and collaborators have done pioneering work in proposing transformation optics, a method to make objects invisible to electromagnetic waves, acoustic waves, matter waves, and other types of waves.

This minisymposium celebrates the anniversary of Professor Uhlmann, his many fundamental and insightful contributions to inverse problems and partial differential equations, and his pioneering work in the mathematics of boundary rigidity, microlocal analysis and cloaking. The methods pioneered by Prof. Gunther Uhlmann are essential contributions to almost all areas of inverse problems.
