M5. Reconstruction Methods in Inverse Obstacle Problems

Inverse obstacle problems are one of typical groups of inverse problems which aim at extracting information about the geometry, quantitative or qualitative property of unknown obstacles, cracks and inclusions embedded in an object to be probed by using the outputs corresponding to several inputs. In this minisymposium, in particular, we concentrate on inverse obstacles problems governed by partial differential equations and collect the new comers and experts in one place who bring new aspects and results and expect to have deep discussions, interactions each other and further developments.
