Title: Time Reversed Absorbing Condition: Application to Inverse Problems
Date: Thursday 3/3/2011
Time: 13:00-14:00
Location: Kyria H-9, 38 Mivza Kadesh St. Tel-Aviv
We introduce the time-reversed absorbing conditions (TRAC) in
time-reversal methods. They enable one to ``recreate the past'' without
knowing the source which has emitted the signals that are back-propagated.
We present two applications in inverse problems: the reduction of the size
of the computational domain and the determination, from boundary
measurements, of the location and volume of an unknown inclusion. The
method does not rely on any  a priori knowledge of the physical properties
of the inclusion. Numerical tests with the wave and Helmholtz equations
illustrate the efficiency of the method. This technique is fairly
insensitive with respect to noise in the data.
This work was made in collaboration with F. Nataf, M. Kray of University
of Paris 6, France,
and E. Turkel of Tel Aviv University.
