Inverse Problems

Inverse problems arise when a searched-for quantity fig2b nfig2a n is not directly observable. A representative example is computerized tomography. The approximate inverse, developed in the institute, is a versatile method that leads to highly efficient algorithms. Even features can directly be calculated from the data without the detour over the density itself. The images on the left are reconstructions from real data and show the superiority of the approach. The field of application includes nondestructive testing, Maxwell's equation and biology/medicine. For more details see Inverse Problems.
