VIP-PDE: Sandbox for Variational Inverse Problems governed by PDEs

VIP-PDE is a tutorial-style description of inverse problems, in which the parameters and the measurement data are related through the solution of a partial differential equation (PDE). It also contains example implementations of the methods and algorithms.

time=0 time=0 time=0
reconstruction Reconstruction of initial condition in advective-diffusive transport. Initial condition and time evolution at two time instances (top row) and reconstructed initial condition using (noisy) time-distributed boundary measurements at inner boundaries (left).
