Partial Data Inverse Problems for the Hodge Laplacian

Abstract

We prove uniqueness results for a Calderón type inverse problem for the Hodge Lapla-cian acting on graded forms on certain manifolds in three dimensions. In particular, we show that partial measurements of the relative-to-absolute or absolute-to-relative boundary value maps uniquely determine a zeroth order potential. The method is based on Carleman estimates for the Hodge Laplacian with relative or absolute boundary conditions, and on the construction of complex geometric optics solutions which reduce the Calderón type problem to a tensor tomogra-phy problem for 2-tensors. The arguments in this paper allow to establish partial data results for elliptic systems that generalize the scalar results due to Kenig-Sjöstrand-Uhlmann.
