Choosing a Parameterization

  • Guy ChaventEmail author
Part of the Scientific Computation book series (SCIENTCOMP)

We address in this chapter practical aspects of parameterization for the same finite dimensional inverse problem (2.5) as in Chap. 2, where the forward map \(x \in I\!\!{R}^{n} \rightsquigarrow v = \varphi (x) \in I\!\!{R}^{q}\)
