A control approach to recover the wave speed (conformal factor) from one measurement

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • In this paper we consider the problem of recovering the conformal factor in a conformal class of Riemannian metrics from the boundary measurement of one wave field. More precisely, using boundary control operators, we derive an explicit equation satisfied by the contrast between two conformal factors (or wave speeds). This equation is Fredholm and generically invertible provided that the domain of interest is properly illuminated at an initial time. We also show locally Lipschitz stability estimates.
