Calderón's problem for p-laplace 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 p-conductivity equation div σ |∇u|p−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.

Lassas, Matti; Liimatainen, Tony; Lin, Yi-Hsuan; 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 ...
Ghosh, Tuhin; Salo, Mikko; Uhlmann, Gunther (Mathematical Sciences Publishers, 2020)We show global uniqueness in an inverse problem for the fractional Schrödinger equation: an unknown potential in a bounded domain is uniquely determined by exterior measurements of solutions. We also show global uniqueness ...
Guillarmou, Colin; Salo, Mikko; Tzou, Leo (Springer, 2019)In this note we show that on any compact subdomain of a K¨ahler manifold that admits sufficiently many global holomorphic functions, the products of harmonic functions form a complete set. This gives a positive answer to ...
Brander, Tommi; Ilmavirta, Joonas; Piiroinen, Petteri; Tyni, Teemu (American Institute of Mathematical Sciences (AIMS), 2020)We study an inverse problem where an unknown radiating source is observed with collimated detectors along a single line and the medium has a known attenuation. The research is motivated by applications in SPECT and beam ...
