Parameter identification in variational and quasi-variational inequalities
Abstract: The mini-symposium inverse problems in partial differential equations will be devoted to recent advances in the theory and the numerical techniques of parameter identification in various PDEs and variational and quasi-variational inequalities. The session will evolve around the following themes: Inverse and ill-posed problems, regularization methods, applications to elasticity imaging, groundwater modeling, signal processing, and other applications.
