This book covers the statistical mechanics approach to computational solution of inverse problems, an innovative area of current research with very promising numerical results. The techniques are applied to a number of real world applications such as limited angle tomography, image deblurring, electical impedance tomography, and biomagnetic inverse problems. Contains detailed examples throughout and includes a chapter on case studies where such methods have been implemented in biomedical engineering.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"The book is devoted to the development of the statistical approach to inverse problems . . The content is written clearly and without citations in the main text. Every chapter has a section called 'Notes and comments' where the citations and further reading, as well as brief comments on more advanced topics, are provided. The book is aimed at postgraduate students . . The book also will be of interest for many researchers and scientists working in the area of image processing." (Tzvetan Semerdjiev, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1068, 2005)"Inverse problems are usually ill-posed in the sense that a solution need not exist, need not be unique, and depends in a discontinuous way on the data . . there have been two quite separate communities dealing with such problems, one basing their methods mainly on functional analysis, the other one on statistics. . several attempts have been made to bridge the gap between these two groups. The book under review . is a further, quite successful attempt in this direction." (Heinz W. Engel, SIAM Review, Vol. 48 (1), 2006)
