Abstract:

In this talk I will present theoretical and computational results for inverse problems involving Maxwell's equations coupled with a general polarization term which includes uncertainty in the dielectric parameters (e.g., relaxation times). I will show our attempts to determine an unknown probability distribution of parameters which describe the dielectric properties of the material. Examples for discrete and continuous distributions will be given.
