A PDE-constrained optimization approach to optical tomography

Xuejun Gu, Andreas H. Hielscher

    Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


    We report on the first formulation of the inverse problem in optical tomography within the framework of PDE-constrained optimization and combine Newton's method for numerical optimization with a Krylov subspace solver. This approach leads to reduced memory requirements and increased convergence speed.
