Introductory Workshop


we have been made aware of a very convincing phone scam that is focusing on our workshop participants. Participants may be contacted by phone by a firm called Business Travel Management to arrange accommodation for workshops and/or programmes.  This includes a request to enter credit card information.

Please note, INI will never contact you over the phone requesting card details. We take all payments via the University of Cambridge Online store

If you have been contacted by this company please contact us as soon as possible.

25th July 2011 to 29th July 2011

Organisers: Malcolm Brown (Cardiff), Matti Lassas (chair) (Helsinki) and Roland Potthast (Reading)

Workshop Theme

Inverse problems research concentrates on the mathematical theory and practical interpretation of indirect measurements. Its applications can be directly implemented in interpreting the data obtained from various kinds of measurements in science and engineering.

As an example of this, inverse problems appear in medical and medical imaging, exploration geophysics, and image processing. By using the methods of inverse problems it is possible to advance a vast number of applied areas.

The aim of the introductory workshop of the Inverse Problems research programme is to provide an overview on several topics that will studied. It is intended for postgraduate students, post-docs, and researchers interested in inverse problems and the related areas.

The workshop consist of courses on analytic and geometric methods for inverse problems (courses C1 and C2), numerical aspects of inverse problems (courses C3 and C4) and on inverse problems in random medium (course C5). The lecturers on these courses are:

  • C1. Gunther Uhlmann (University Washington and University of California at Irvine)
  • C2. Adrian Nachman (University of Toronto)
  • C3. Andreas Kirsch (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology)
  • C4. Samuli Siltanen (University of Helsinki)
  • C5. Liliana Borcea (Rice University)

The workshop contains also highlighted lectures giving one hour overview on focused topics in inverse problems. These lectures will be given by:

  • H1. Rainer Kress (University of Göttingen)
  • H2. Yaroslav Kurylev (University College London)
  • H3. Martin Burger (University of Münster)
