# Joint estimation of Robin coefficient and domain boundary for the Poisson problem

@article{Nicholson2021JointEO, title={Joint estimation of Robin coefficient and domain boundary for the Poisson problem}, author={Ruanui Nicholson and Matti Niskanen}, journal={Inverse Problems}, year={2021}, volume={38} }

We consider the problem of simultaneously inferring the heterogeneous coefficient field for a Robin boundary condition on an inaccessible part of the boundary along with the shape of the boundary for the Poisson problem. Such a problem arises in, for example, corrosion detection, and thermal parameter estimation. We carry out both linearised uncertainty quantification, based on a local Gaussian approximation, and full exploration of the joint posterior using Markov chain Monte Carlo sampling…

A rigorous analysis for the error in the covariance introduced by the window technique, for homogeneous Dirichlet, homogeneous Neumann, and periodic boundary conditions is provided, showing that the error decays exponentially in the window size, independently of the type of boundary condition.

This work forms the Gauss–Newton Hessian at the maximum a posteriori point and uses it as a fixed constant metric tensor throughout RMHMC simulation, which eliminates the need for the computationally costly differential geometric Christoffel symbols, and greatly reduces computational effort at a corresponding loss of sampling efficiency.

To address the challenges of sampling high-dimensional pdfs arising from Bayesian inverse problems governed by PDEs, an approximation of the stochastic Newton MCMC method is introduced in which the low-rank-based Hessian is computed at just the MAP point, and then reused at each MCMC step.

A computational framework for estimating the uncertainty in the numerical solution of linearized infinite-dimensional statistical inverse problems that incorporates algorithms for manipulating the prior, constructing a low rank approximation of the data-informed component of the posterior covariance operator, and exploring the posterior that together ensure scalability of the entire framework to very high parameter dimensions.
