Inverse Problems is a monograph which contains a self-contained presentation of the theory of several major inverse problems and the closely related results from the theory of ill-posed problems. The book is aimed at a large audience which include graduate students and researchers in mathematical, physical, and engineering sciences and in the area of numerical analysis.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews of the first edition:

"The author’s attention is addressed … to inverse problems for scattering theory … . the reviewer emphasizes the author’s effort of simplifying both the results in the mathematical literature and his own ones as well as the effort of unifying the theory of the inverse problems illustrated. Moreover, the proofs of the various propositions are almost always inserted in the book so that we can say the volume is friendly to readers … . Finally, the proofs are well written … ." (Alfredo Lorenzi, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1083, 2006)

“This book is devoted to the investigation of inverse problems for PDEs, in particular, to the theory of inverse spectral problems and inverse scattering problems. … Graduate students and researchers will find in this work extensive reference material including a collection of relevant classical results as well as several new developments in the area of inverse and ill-posed problems.” (Antonio C. G. Leitão, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2012 k)
