A global uniqueness theorem for an inverse boundary value problem
In this paper, we show that the single smooth coefficient of the elliptic operator LY = v yv can be determined from knowledge of its Dirichlet integrals for arbitrary boundary values on a fixedExpand

Corners Always Scatter
We study time harmonic scattering for the Helmholtz equation in $${\mathbb{R}^n}$$Rn. We show that certain penetrable scatterers with rectangular corners scatter every incident wave nontrivially.Expand

Transmission eigenvalues are points in the spectrum of the interior transmission operator, a coupled $2 \times 2$ system of elliptic partial differential equations where one unknown function must satisfy two boundary conditions and the other must satisfy none. Expand

A uniqueness theorem for an inverse boundary value problem in electrical prospection
We show that a near constant conductivity of a two-dimensional body can be uniquely determined by steady state direct current measurements at the boundary. Mathematically, we show that theExpand

The interior transmission problem
The interior transmission problem is a boundary value problem that plays a basic role in inverse scattering theory but unfortunately does not seem to be included in any existing theory in partialExpand

The scattering support
We discuss inverse problems for the Helmholtz equation at fixed energy, specifically the inverse source problem and the inverse scattering problem from a medium or an obstacle. We introduce theExpand

The heat equation and reflected Brownian motion in time-dependent domains
The paper is concerned with reflecting Brownian motion (RBM) in domains with deterministic moving boundaries, also known as "noncylindrical domains,'' and its connections with partial differentialExpand

An anisotropic inverse boundary value problem
We consider the impedance tomography problem for anisotropic conductivities. Given a bounded region Ω in space, a diffeomorphism Ψ from Ω to itself which restricts to the identity on ∂ Ω, and aExpand

A 'range test' for determining scatterers with unknown physical properties
We describe a new scheme for determining the convex scattering support of an unknown scatterer when the physical properties of the scatterers are not known. The convex scattering support is a subsetExpand

Inverse boundary value problems at the boundary—continuous dependence
We use the methods of microlocal analysis to give a new proof of a theorem of Kohn and Vogelius, showing that the boundary values of a continuous isotropic conductivity can be recovered from voltageExpand
