Calderón's problem for plaplace type equations
We investigate a generalization of Calderón’s problem of recovering the conductivity coeﬃcient in a conductivity equation from boundary measurements. As a model
equation we consider the pconductivity equation
div σ ∇up−2 ∇u = 0
with 1 < p < ∞, which reduces to the standard conductivity equation when p = 2.
The thesis consists of results on the direct problem, boundary determination and
detecting inclusions. We formulate the equation as a variational problem also when
the conductivity σ may be zero or inﬁnity in large sets. As a boundary determination
result we recover the ﬁrst order derivative of a smooth conductivity on the boundary.
We use the enclosure method of Ikehata to recover the convex hull of an inclusion of
ﬁnite conductivity and ﬁnd an upper bound for the convex hull if the conductivity
within an inclusion is zero or inﬁnite.

Refined instability estimates for some inverse problems
Kow, PuZhao; Wang, JennNan (American Institute of Mathematical Sciences (AIMS), 2022)Many inverse problems are known to be illposed. The illposedness can be manifested by an instability estimate of exponential type, first derived by Mandache [29]. In this work, based on Mandache's idea, we refine the ... 
Partial Data Problems and Unique Continuation in Scalar and Vector Field Tomography
Ilmavirta, Joonas; Mönkkönen, Keijo (Birkhäuser, 2022)We prove that if P(D) is some constant coefficient partial differential operator and f is a scalar field such that P(D)f vanishes in a given open set, then the integrals of f over all lines intersecting that open set ...

Sahoo, Suman Kumar; Salo, Mikko (Elsevier BV, 2023)In this article we consider a linearized Calderón problem for polyharmonic operators of order 2m (m ≥ 2) in the spirit of Calderón’s original work [7]. We give a uniqueness result for determining coefficients of order ≤ ...

Inverse problems for elliptic equations with power type nonlinearities
Lassas, Matti; Liimatainen, Tony; Lin, YiHsuan; Salo, Mikko (Elsevier, 2021)We introduce a method for solving Calderón type inverse problems for semilinear equations with power type nonlinearities. The method is based on higher order linearizations, and it allows one to solve inverse problems for ...
