# A Newton method for reconstructing non star-shaped domains in electrical impedance tomography

• We study the reconstruction of the shape of a perfectly conducting inclusion in three dimensional electrical impedance tomography (EIT) using a regularized Newton method. This method involves a least squares penalty in the form of an additional nonlinear operator to cope with the non-uniqueness of general parametrizations of the unknown boundary. We provide a convergence result for this method in the general framework of nonlinear ill-posed operator equations. Moreover, we discuss the evaluation of the forward operator in EIT, its derivative, and the adjoint of the derivative using a wavelet based boundary element method. Numerical examples illustrate the performance of our method.
