Inverse Problems: What are they and what are they for?

16h00 - 18h00

About Event

An introduction to Inverse Problems will be presented in this lecture. It is an interdisciplinary area with a strong connection with Data Science, Mathematical and Computational Modeling, Numerical Analysis, Functional Analysis, and Optimization. Some illustrative examples of applications of Inverse Problems techniques will also be presented, such as Computed Tomography in Diagnostic Medicine and Calibration of Local Volatility in Quantitative Finance.
