  1. 1. A Two-stage Numerical Procedure for an Inverse Scattering Problem

    Författare :John Bondestam Malmberg; Göteborgs universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; coefficient inverse problem; inverse scattering; backscattering data; approximate global convergence; finite element method; adaptivity; a posteriori error analysis; a posteriori error analysis;

    Sammanfattning : In this thesis we study a numerical procedure for the solution of the inverse problem of reconstructing location, shape and material properties (in particular refractive indices) of scatterers located in a known background medium. The data consist of time-resolved backscattered radar signals from a single source position. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Efficient Adaptive Algorithms for an Electromagnetic Coefficient Inverse Problem

    Författare :John Bondestam Malmberg; Göteborgs universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; coefficient inverse problem; inverse scattering; Maxwell’s equations; approximate global convergence; finite element method; adaptivity; ; a posteriori error analysis;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis comprises five scientific papers, all of which are focusing on the inverse problem of reconstructing a dielectric permittivity which may vary in space inside a given domain. The data for the reconstruction consist of time-domain observations of the electric field, resulting from a single incident wave, on a part of the boundary of the domain under consideration. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Radial Basis Function generated Finite Difference Methods for Pricing of Financial Derivatives

    Författare :Slobodan Milovanović; Lina von Sydow; Bertram Düring; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Radial basis function; Finite difference; Computational finance; Pricing of financial derivatives; Option pricing; Partial differential equation; Beräkningsvetenskap med inriktning mot numerisk analys; Scientific Computing with specialization in Numerical Analysis;

    Sammanfattning : The purpose of this thesis is to present state of the art in radial basis function generated finite difference (RBF-FD) methods for pricing of financial derivatives. This work provides a detailed overview of RBF-FD properties and challenges that arise when the RBF-FD methods are used in financial applications. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Adaptivity for Stochastic and Partial Differential Equations with Applications to Phase Transformations

    Författare :Erik von Schwerin; Anders Szepessy; Desmond Higham; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Numerical analysis; Numerisk analys;

    Sammanfattning : his work is concentrated on efforts to efficiently compute properties of systems, modelled by differential equations, involving multiple scales. Goal oriented adaptivity is the common approach to all the treated problems. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Approximation of topology optimization problems using sizing optimization problems

    Författare :Anton Evgrafov; Göteborgs universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; structural optimization; bilevel programming; approximation; topology optimization; control in coefficients; optimal design; fictitious domain; control in coefficients;

    Sammanfattning : The present work is devoted to approximation techniques for singular extremal problems arising from optimal design problems in structural and fluid mechanics. The thesis consists of an introductory part and four independent papers, which however are united by the common idea of approximation and the related application areas. LÄS MER
