M9: Physical Imaging

Chair: Dominique Lesselier (Laboratoire des Signaux et Systèmes (CNRS-SUPELEC-UPS), Gif-sur-Yvette, France)

Physical imaging is a multi-disciplinary approach for solving imaging problems which combines physical insight (reflected by carefully chosen mathematical models) with clever algorithmic development. The goal might be to determine the internal structure of a material, detect possible damage or describe some special feature or a form of disorganization from gathered data where one model parameter is the proper design of source and detector geometries. Good examples of such problems will be presented and discussed in this mini-symposium, where special emphasis is put on clarifying the close interplay between computational treatment of the underlying physics (including model selection), data processing and efficient image reconstruction algorithms.

M13: Regularisation Methods- Algorithms

Chair: Barbara Kaltenbacher (Alpen - Adria Universitaet Klagenfurt, Austria)

The treatment of large scale inverse problems, e.g., in the context of PDE models, and the use of sophisticated regularization terms for incorporating prior knowledge, e.g., on sparsity of the solution or on the structure of the noise, pose new algorithmic challenges to regularisation methods. Discretizations have to reflect the features of the underlying infinite dimensional spaces and non-smoothness of the operators as well as non-reflectivity of the underlying spaces render a convergence analysis of iterative methods a difficult task. In this mini symposium we aim to present and discuss recent activities in the field of computational methods for inverse problems.
