M8. Inverse Problems in Science and Engineering

Inverse problems arise in many areas of mathematical physics and applications are rapidly expanding to geophysics, chemistry, medicine and engineering. This minisymposium focuses on both analytical and computational methods for inverse problems in Science and Engineering. The approaches developed for such problems generally include numerical approximations, stability analysis, proofs of uniqueness and/or existence of the solution.

The minisymposium aims at bringing together well established scientists as well as young researchers working on inverse problems for partial differential equations. The topics of the minisymposium range from the mathematical modelling and the theoretical analysis of inverse problems for partial differential equations where some parameters (right-hand side, kernel, diffusion coefficient, etc.), unknown boundary condition(s) or portion of the boundary are to be found, to the development of efficient numerical schemes and their practical in applications in sciences, engineering and finance.
