Inverse problems to identify parameters by incorporating information from measurements are formulated here in a probabilistic setting based on data from measurements to solve generally ill-posed problems.

Parameter Estimation Based on Least Squares Methods

It is shown that for many problems for which there are correlated effects it is possible to develop algorithms that use structure associated with the variance matrices to solve the problems efficiently.

Popper, Bayes and the inverse problem
