Welcome to the CS 6959 - Computational Inverse Problems class webpage. Here you will find the latest class information, assignments, handouts, and other useful information.
The solution of an inverse problem entails determining unknown causes based on observation of their effects. This is in contrast to the corresponding direct problem, whose solution involves finding effects based on a complete description of their causes. Inverse problems can be found in virtually all engineering and scientific subdisciplines from applications in geophysics to mechanical engineering to medicine. We will take a computational approach to studying inverse problems concentrating on algorithms focusing on reliability and efficiency, both of which are important as the size and complexity of the computational problems grow.
Here are some links to some of the mathematicians, computer scientists, scientists, and engineers that we will mention during the course:
The University of Utah seeks to provide equal access to its programs, services and activities for people with disabilities. If you will need accommodations in the class, reasonable prior notice needs to be given to the Center for Disability Services, 162 Olpin Union Building, 581-5020 (V/TDD). CDS will work with you and the instructor to make arrangements for accommodations. All written information in this course can be made available in alternative format with prior notification to the Center for Disability Services.
