  • Inverse Problem techniques offer powerful tools which deal naturally with marginal data and asymmetric or strongly smoothing kernels, in cases where parameter-fitting methods may be used only with some caution. Although they are typically subject to some bias, they can invert data without requiring one to assume a particular model for the source. The Backus-Gilbert method in particular concentrates on the tradeoff between resolution and stability, and allows one to select an optimal compromise… CONTINUE READING
