Boundary Integral Formulations for Inverse Analysis

Hardcover (Print)
Not Available on

Editorial Reviews

Presents boundary integral formulations for the analysis of inverse problems, which attempt to find the cause of a known result. The approach has the advantage of being able to treat unbounded regions, point singularities, and deforming boundaries. Specialists describe problems in a wide range of engineering fields, among them identifying the thermal properties of heat-conducting materials, integral equation methods in inverse acoustic and electromagnetic scattering, identifying parameters in groundwater systems, identifying piecewise homogeneous properties of rocks, analyzing continuous fields using the boundary element method with a filtering procedure, and free surface flows.
