Mathematical techniques in science and engineering have evolved to expand our ability to visualize various physical phenomena of interest and their characteristics in detail. Many significant applied and basic research questions today are interdisciplinary in nature, involving mathematics, physics, engineering and biomedical science. A large variety of natural phenomena occurring in real life applications from science and engineering to medical imaging fields are described by means of partial differential equations. Developing mathematical models with practical significance and value requires fusing the knowledge and techniques of the traditional engineering fields with pure and applied mathematics. Many problems are intrinsically nonlinear. Finding solutions with practical significance and value requires in-depth understanding of the underlying physical phenomena with data acquisition systems as well as implementation details of algorithms. Experiences over the last three decades showed that symbiotic interplay among theories and experiments is crucial for understanding and solving these realistic model problems.

 This book provides researchers and engineers in the imaging field with the skills they need to effectively deal with nonlinear inverse problems associated with different imaging modalities, including impedance imaging, elastography, and electrical source imaging. Focusing on numerically implementable methods, the book bridges the gap between theory and applications, helping readers tackle problems in applied mathematics and engineering. Complete, self-contained coverage includes basic concepts, models, computational methods, numerical simulations, examples, and case studies.
