Inverse problem for the waves : stability and convergence matters (ENGLISH)
[ 講演概要 ]
This talk aims to present some recent works in collaboration with Maya de Buhan, Sylvain Ervedoza and Axel Osses regarding an inverse problem for the wave equation. More specifically, we study the determination of the potential in a wave equation with given Dirichlet boundary data from a measurement of the flux of the solution on a part of the boundary. On the one hand, we will focus on the question of convergence of the space semi-discrete inverse problems toward their continuous counterpart. Several uniqueness and stability results are available in the literature about the continuous setting of the inverse problem of determination of a potential in the wave equation. In particular, we can mention a Lipschitz stability result under a classical geometric condition obtained by Imanuvilov and Yamamoto, and a logarithmic stability result obtained by Bellassoued when the observation measurement is made on an arbitrary part of the boundary. In both situations, we can design a numerical process for which convergence results are proved. The analysis we conduct is based on discrete Carleman estimates, either for the hyperbolic or for the elliptic operator, in which case we shall use a result of Boyer, Hubert and Le Rousseau. On the other hand, still considering the same inverse problem, we will present a new reconstruction algorithm of the potential. The design and convergence of the algorithm are based on the Carleman estimates for the waves previously used to prove the Lipschitz stability. We will finally give some simple illustrative numerical simulations for 1-d problems.
