Inverse problems are concerned with determining causes for a desired
or an observed
effect or calibrating the parameters of a mathematical model to
reproduce observations.
Inverse problems most often do not fulfill Hadamard's postulates of *well-posedness*:
they might not have a solution in the strict sense, solutions might not
be unique and/or
might not depend continuously on the data. Hence their mathematical
analysis is subtle.
However they have many applications in engineering, physics and other
fields. Here are
some web ressources on Ill posed inverse problems.
