A comparison of deterministic and Bayesian inverse with application in micromechanics

Radim Blaheta, Michal Béreš, Simona Domesová, Pengzhi Pan (2018)

Applications of Mathematics

The paper deals with formulation and numerical solution of problems of identification of material parameters for continuum mechanics problems in domains with heterogeneous microstructure. Due to a restricted number of measurements of quantities related to physical processes, we assume additional information about the microstructure geometry provided by CT scan or similar analysis. The inverse problems use output least squares cost functionals with values obtained from averages of state problem quantities...

A modified quasi-boundary value method for the backward time-fractional diffusion problem

Ting Wei, Jun-Gang Wang (2014)

ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis - Modélisation Mathématique et Analyse Numérique

In this paper, we consider a backward problem for a time-fractional diffusion equation with variable coefficients in a general bounded domain. That is to determine the initial data from a noisy final data. Based on a series expression of the solution, a conditional stability for the initial data is given. Further, we propose a modified quasi-boundary value regularization method to deal with the backward problem and obtain two kinds of convergence rates by using an a priori regularization parameter...

An analysis of electrical impedance tomography with applications to Tikhonov regularization

Bangti Jin, Peter Maass (2012)

ESAIM: Control, Optimisation and Calculus of Variations

This paper analyzes the continuum model/complete electrode model in the electrical impedance tomography inverse problem of determining the conductivity parameter from boundary measurements. The continuity and differentiability of the forward operator with respect to the conductivity parameter in Lp-norms are proved. These analytical results are applied to several popular regularization formulations, which incorporate a priori information of smoothness/sparsity on the inhomogeneity through Tikhonov...

Inverse modelling of image-based patient-specific blood vessels: zero-pressure geometry and in vivo stress incorporation

Joris Bols, Joris Degroote, Bram Trachet, Benedict Verhegghe, Patrick Segers, Jan Vierendeels (2013)

ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis - Modélisation Mathématique et Analyse Numérique

In vivo visualization of cardiovascular structures is possible using medical images. However, one has to realize that the resulting 3D geometries correspond to in vivo conditions. This entails an internal stress state to be present in the in vivo measured geometry of e.g. a blood vessel due to the presence of the blood pressure. In order to correct for this in vivo stress, this paper presents an inverse method to restore the original zero-pressure geometry of a structure, and to recover the in vivo...

Inverse source problem in a space fractional diffusion equation from the final overdetermination

Amir Hossein Salehi Shayegan, Reza Bayat Tajvar, Alireza Ghanbari, Ali Safaie (2019)

Applications of Mathematics

We consider the problem of determining the unknown source term f = f ( x , t ) in a space fractional diffusion equation from the measured data at the final time u ( x , T ) = ψ ( x ) . In this way, a methodology involving minimization of the cost functional J ( f ) = 0 l ( u ( x , t ; f ) | t = T - ψ ( x ) ) 2 d x is applied and shown that this cost functional is Fréchet differentiable and its derivative can be formulated via the solution of an adjoint problem. In addition, Lipschitz continuity of the gradient is proved. These results help us to prove the monotonicity and convergence...

On estimation of diffusion coefficient based on spatio-temporal FRAP images: An inverse ill-posed problem

Kaňa, Radek, Matonoha, Ctirad, Papáček, Štěpán, Soukup, Jindřich (2013)

Programs and Algorithms of Numerical Mathematics

We present the method for determination of phycobilisomes diffusivity (diffusion coefficient D ) on thylakoid membrane from fluorescence recovery after photobleaching (FRAP) experiments. This was usually done by analytical models consisting mainly of a simple curve fitting procedure. However, analytical models need some unrealistic conditions to be supposed. Our method, based on finite difference approximation of the process governed by the Fickian diffusion equation and on the minimization of an...

On the optimization of initial conditions for a model parameter estimation

Matonoha, Ctirad, Papáček, Štěpán, Kindermann, Stefan (2017)

Programs and Algorithms of Numerical Mathematics

The design of an experiment, e.g., the setting of initial conditions, strongly influences the accuracy of the process of determining model parameters from data. The key concept relies on the analysis of the sensitivity of the measured output with respect to the model parameters. Based on this approach we optimize an experimental design factor, the initial condition for an inverse problem of a model parameter estimation. Our approach, although case independent, is illustrated at the FRAP (Fluorescence...

Reconstruction algorithms for an inverse medium problem

Ji-Chuan Liu (2018)

Applications of Mathematics

In this paper, we consider a two-dimensional inverse medium problem from noisy observation data. We propose effective reconstruction algorithms to detect the number, the location and the size of the piecewise constant medium within a body, and then we try to recover the unknown shape of inhomogeneous media. This problem is nonlinear and ill-posed, thus we should consider stable and elegant approaches in order to improve the corresponding approximation. We give several examples to show the viability...

Reconstruction of thickness variation of a dielectric coating through the generalized impedance boundary conditions

Birol Aslanyürek, Hülya Sahintürk (2014)

ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis - Modélisation Mathématique et Analyse Numérique

We deal with an inverse scattering problem whose aim is to determine the thickness variation of a dielectric thin coating located on a conducting structure of unknown shape. The inverse scattering problem is solved through the application of the Generalized Impedance Boundary Conditions (GIBCs) which contain the thickness, curvature as well as material properties of the coating and they have been obtained in the previous work [B. Aslanyürek, H. Haddar and H.Şahintürk, Wave Motion 48 (2011) 681–700]...

Regularization of nonlinear ill-posed problems by exponential integrators

Marlis Hochbruck, Michael Hönig, Alexander Ostermann (2009)

ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis

The numerical solution of ill-posed problems requires suitable regularization techniques. One possible option is to consider time integration methods to solve the Showalter differential equation numerically. The stopping time of the numerical integrator corresponds to the regularization parameter. A number of well-known regularization methods such as the Landweber iteration or the Levenberg-Marquardt method can be interpreted as variants of the Euler method for solving the Showalter differential...

Symplectic Pontryagin approximations for optimal design

Jesper Carlsson, Mattias Sandberg, Anders Szepessy (2008)

ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis

The powerful Hamilton-Jacobi theory is used for constructing regularizations and error estimates for optimal design problems. The constructed Pontryagin method is a simple and general method for optimal design and reconstruction: the first, analytical, step is to regularize the Hamiltonian; next the solution to its stationary Hamiltonian system, a nonlinear partial differential equation, is computed with the Newton method. The method is efficient for designs where the Hamiltonian function...
