This monographdeals with methods of studying multidimensional inverse problems for kinetic and other evolution equations, in particular transfer equations. The methods used are applied to concrete inverse problems, especially multidimensional inverse problems applicable in linear and nonlinear statements. A significant part of the book contains formulas and relations for solving inverse problems, including formulas for the solution and coefficients of kinetic equations, differential-difference equations, nonlinear evolution equations, and second order equations.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Inverse problems for differential equations are problems of determining, besides the solution, the coefficients of equations, given additional information on the solution. Inverse problems are linked to problems of scattering and potential theories; heat- and radiation-transfer equations; integral geometry; tomography; and identification, control, and image recovery. In this text for mathematicians and engineers, Anikonov (affiliation not cited ) describes methods of studying multidimensional inverse problems for kinetic and other evolution equations, and, in particular, for transfer equations.
