Travel Time Tomography and Tensor Tomography

Uhlmann, G (Washington & UC, Irvine)
Monday 22 August 2011, 11:45-12:30

Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute


We will give a survey on some recent results on travel tomography which consists in determining the index of refraction of a medium by measuring the travel times of sound waves going through the medium. We will also consider the related problem of tensor tomography which consists in determining a function, a vector field or tensors of higher rank from their integrals along geodesics.
