Approximate globally convergent algorithm with applications in electrical prospecting
Paper in proceedings, 2013
In this paper we present at the first time an approximate globally convergent method for the reconstruction of an unknown conductivity function from backscattered electric field measured at the boundary of geological medium under assumptions that dielectric permittivity and magnetic permeability functions are known. This is the typical case of an coefficient inverse problem in electrical prospecting. We consider a simplified mathematical model assuming that geological medium is isotropic and non-dispersive.
