Geometrization of Rings as a Method for Solving Inverse Problems

  • Mikhail Belishev
Part of the International Mathematical Series book series (IMAT, volume 10)

In the boundary value inverse problems on manifolds, it is required to recover a Riemannian manifold ʊ from its boundary inverse data (the elliptic or hyperbolic Dirichlet-to-Neumann map, spectral data, etc). We show that for a class of elliptic and hyperbolic problems the required manifold is identical with the spectrum of a certain algebra determined by the inverse data and, consequently, to recover the manifold it suffices to represent the corresponding algebra in the relevant canonical form.
