In the above publications improvement in the image reconstruction is achieved by local mesh refinements using a posteriori error estimate in the Tikhonov functional and in the reconstructed coefficient. In this paper we apply results of the above publications and present the relaxation property for the mesh refinements and a posteriori error estimate for the reconstructed coefficient for a hyperbolic CIP, formulate an adaptive algorithm, and apply it to the reconstruction of the coefficient in hyperbolic PDE. Our numerical examples present performance of the two-step numerical procedure on the computationally simulated data where on the first step we obtain good approximation of the exact coefficient using approximate globally convergent method of Beilina and Klibanov (Approximate Global Convergence and Adaptivity for Coefficient Inverse Problems, Springer, New York, 2012), and on the second step we take this solution for further improvement via adaptive mesh refinements.
