CWRU MAMS Professor Erkki Somersalo receives NSF-DMS Grants

A commonly encountered type of inverse problems is to estimate coefficient functions of a partial differential equation over a domain based on measurements of its solutions either inside or at the boundary of the domain. The computational treatment of such problems requires discretization of the problem, e.g., by using the finite element...
