About this book
The nature and the human creations are full of complex phenomena, which sometimes can be observed but rarely follow our hypotheses. The best we can do is to build a parametric model and then try to adjust the unknown parameters based on the available observations. This topic, called parameter identification, is discussed in this book for materials and structures. The present volume of lecture notes follows a very successful advanced school, which we had the honor to coordinate in Udine, October 6-10, 2003. The authors of this volume present a wide spectrum of theories, methods and applications related to inverse and parameter identification problems. We thank the invited lecturers and the authors of this book for their contributions, the participants of the course for their active participation and the interesting discussions as well as the people of CISMfor their hospitality and their well-known professional help.
