Recommended: Largescale Inverse problems and Quantification of Uncertainty, Lorenz Biegler (Editor), Wiley, 2011.
COURSE OBJECTIVES
Inverse problems are an active area of contemporary mathematics, and in this course we will focus on problems in geoscience and engineering. In addition, students may choose to work on problems in biology, medical imaging or finance for their projects. The goal is for you to learn a broad range of modern approaches to inverse problems that will benefit your future work.
ACADEMIC HONESTY
Students may collaborate on homework questions however, once you begin writing the version that you will submit, you may not longer collaborate on that problem. In particular, each student will turn in their own work, use their own computer programs and there will be a penalty if students turn in the same work.
GRADING SCHEME:
Late Homework Policy: Homework should be turned in on the date it is due, and unless there are extenuating circumstances, there is a 10% per day late penalty.
Late Project Policy: Projects should be turned in on the date they are due, and unless there are extenuating circumstances, there is a 10% per day late penalty.
