Two Central Questions of This Book and an Introduction to the Theories of Ill-posed and Coefficient Inverse Problems

  • Larisa Beilina
  • Michael Victor Klibanov


This is an introductory chapter. In Sect. 1.1, we outline two central questions discussed in this book. Sections 1.2–1.9 are introductory ones to the theory of illposed problems. In Sects. 1.10 and 1.11, we present main uniqueness results for coefficient inverse problems (CIPs) with the single measurement data. The material of this chapter might serve as an introductory course for theories of ill-posed and CIPs. We refer to books [7, 10, 41, 45, 48, 51, 54, 60, 65, 83, 84, 90, 93, 94, 102, 124, 138, 143, 144, 153, 154] where various Ill-Posed and CIPs were studied.
