Inverse Problems Research
Inverse problems research lies at the intersection of pure and applied mathematics. The inverse problems research groups at the Department of Mathematics and Statistics of University of Helsinki have in recent years made fundamental contributions in inverse problems in partial differential equations, geometry, and stochastics, with applications in medical imaging, nondestructive testing, and invisibility cloaking.
We are focused on both theoretical and computational inverse problems, having important applications and implementations in interpreting the data obtained from various measurements in science and engineering.
We are part of the Finnish Centre of Excellence in Inverse Problems Research and the Rolf Nevanlinna Institute, and have an active role in the Finnish Inverse Problems Society.
Our research interests spread the whole spectrum from purely mathematical results to R&D work in industry, that is, from theorems to patents.
