We are concerned with the retrieval of the unknown cross section of a homogeneous cylindrical obstacle embedded in a homogeneous medium and illuminated by time-harmonic electromagnetic line sources. The dielectric parameters of the obstacle and embedding materials are known and piecewise constant. That is, the shape (here, the contour) of the obstacle is(More)
The purpose of this investigation is to understand situations under which an enhancement method succeeds in recovering an image from data which are noisy and blurred. The method in question is due to Rudin and Osher. The method selects, from a class of feasible images, one that has the least total variation. Our investigation is limited to images which have(More)
The problem of quantitative nondestructive evaluation of corrosion in plates is considered. The inpection method uses boundary measurements of currents and voltages to determine the material loss caused by corrosion. The development of the method is based on linearization and the assumption that the plate is thin. The behavior of the method is examined in(More)
A reliable and efficient computational algorithm for restoring blurred and noisy images is proposed. The restoration process is based on the minimal total variation principle introduced by Rudin et al. For discrete images, the proposed algorithm minimizes a piecewise linear l (1) function (a measure of total variation) subject to a single 2-norm inequality(More)
Electrical impedance tomography is a procedure by which one nds the conductivity distribution inside a domain from measurements of voltages and currents at the boundary. This work addresses the issue of stability and resolution limit of such an imaging device. We consider the realistic case where only a nite number of measurements are available. An(More)
