Inverse problems related to the estimation of coeecients of partial diierential equations are illposed. Practical applications often use the t-to-data output-least-square's method to recover the coeecients. In this work, we develop parallel nonoverlapping domain decomposition algorithms to estimate the diiusion coeecient associated with elliptic diierential equations. In order to realize the domain decomposition methods, we combine the function decomposition approach of Tai95a] and the… CONTINUE READING
