Title:Inverse problems in optical imaging
Seminar:Department of Mathematics Colloquium
Speaker:John Schotland, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor
Abstract:
This is an introductory talk on inverse problems with applications to biomedical optical imaging. It is designed to be accessible to a general mathematical audience, especially graduate students. We will begin by discussing Calderon-type problems, in which the coefficients in an elliptic partial differential equation are to be recovered from boundary measurements. We will review the classical results on uniqueness and stability and then turn to the problem of image reconstruction. Finally, we discuss recent efforts to develop direct reconstruction methods that are both mathematically justified and computationally efficient. Numerical simulations and experimental data from model systems will be used to illustrate the results. Applications to optical imaging of breast disease will be outlined.
