Inverse Parabolic Problems

  • Victor Isakov
Part of the Applied Mathematical Sciences book series (AMS, volume 127)


In this chapter, we consider the second-order parabolic equation
$$\displaystyle{ a_{0}\partial _{t}u -\mathrm{div}(a\nabla u) + b \cdot \nabla u + cu = f\,\mathrm{in}\,Q = \varOmega \times (0,T), }$$
where Ω is a bounded domain the space \(\mathbb{R}^{n}\) with the C2-smooth boundary ∂ Ω.
