An important aspect of the physical sciences is to make inferences about physical parameters from data. In general, the laws of physics provide the means for computing the data values given a model. This is called the “forward problem”, see figure 1. In the inverse problem, the aim is to reconstruct the model from a set of measurements. In the ideal case, an exact theory exists that prescribes how the data should be transformed in order to reproduce the model. For some selected examples such a… CONTINUE READING
