Inverse and ill-posed problems series


Mathematical physics equations, like some other problems, often require solving boundary value problems for partial differential equations. Attaining approximate solutions requires developing and examining numerical methods for boundary value problems formulated for basic mathematical physics equations. Basing their work on that of the Russian mathematical pioneer Andrei Nikolaevich Tikhonov, the authors explain Russian techniques in inverse mathematical problems, boundary value problems for ordinary differential equations, boundary value problems for elliptic equations, boundary value problems for parabolic equations, solution methods for ill-posed problems (to which inverse mathematical physics problems often belong), right-hand side identification, evolutionary inverse problems and other problems, including non-local distribution of boundary conditions. They provide exercises at the end of each chapter.
