Show Summary Details


This chapter introduces the underlying difference between a forward problem and an inverse problem. Fundamental issues such as solvability, computability, sensitivity, and feasibility are raised. Different formulations based on the prescribed spectral and structural constraints are classified via a nomenclative system and an inclusion diagram.

Keywords: forward problem; inverse problem; spectral constraint; structural constraint

Chapter.  3714 words.  Illustrated.
