This paper analyzes the reconstruction of diffusion and absorption parameters in an elliptic equation from knowledge of internal data. In the application of photoacoustics, the internal data are the amount of thermal energy deposited by high frequency radiation propagating inside a domain of interest. These data are obtained by solving an inverse wave(More)
We study the boundary rigidity problem for domains in Rn: is a Riemannian metric uniquely determined, up to an action of diffeomorphism fixing the boundary, by the distance function g.x; y/ known for all boundary points x and y? It was conjectured by Michel that this was true for simple metrics. In this paper, we study the linearized problem first which(More)
We prove that a potential q can be reconstructed from the Dirichlet-to-Neumann map for the Schrödinger operator −∆g + q in a fixed admissible 3-dimensional Riemannian manifold (M, g). We also show that an admissible metric g in a fixed conformal class can be constructed from the Dirichlet-to-Neumann map for ∆g. This is a constructive version of earlier(More)
There has recently been considerable interest in the possibility, both theoretical and practical, of invisibility (or “cloaking”) from observation by electromagnetic (EM) waves. Here, we prove invisibility with respect to solutions of the Helmholtz and Maxwell’s equations, for several constructions of cloaking devices. The basic idea, as in the papers(More)
We consider in two dimensions, the inverse boundary problem of reconstructing the absorption and scattering coefficient of an inhomogeneous medium by probing it with diffuse light. The problem is modeled as an inverse boundary problem for the stationary linear Boltzmann equation. The information is encoded in the albedo operator. We show that we can recover(More)
