Description
During the last 20 years or so there has been remarkable developments in the mathematical theory of inverse problems (IP). One of the main objectives of the PASI on IP Workshop will be to bring many of these developments to advanced graduates students, postdocs and other scientists in the Americas interested in IP and its applications. Emphasis will also be made on the open problems in the field. Another important objective of the PASI on IP Workshop is to foster international cooperation throughout the Americas by bringing different areas of expertise in the field of IP together in one event. The main three areas of focus of PASI will be computer tomography, inverse boundary value problems and inverse scattering problems. The plan is to have every day of the Institute three minicourses of 1 hour to give ample time for discussion sessions. The following distinguished researchers have agreed to give minicourses in the PASI workshop: Maarten V. de Hoop(Colorado School of Mines): The impact of microlocal analysis on exploration seismology Adel Faridani (Oregon State University): Mathematical Problems in Computed Tomography Clifford Nolan (Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute): TBA Gunther Uhlmann (University of Washington): Electrical Impedance Tomography Ricardo Weder (Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico): The time-dependent approach to inverse scattering Jorge Zubelli (IMPA, Brazil): Tomography in the presence of diffusion and scattering Please note that eligibility for funding support for this workshop only is limited to researchers from the Americas (Canada, the United States, Mexico, and Central and South American states). Others are welcome to attend, but will not be eligible for funding support. The Pan-American Advanced Study Institute is funded by the National Science Foundation. Group photo of participants

Show Funding

To apply for funding, you must register by the funding application deadline displayed above.

Students, recent Ph.D.'s, women, and members of underrepresented minorities are particularly encouraged to apply. Funding awards are typically made 6 weeks before the workshop begins. Requests received after the funding deadline are considered only if additional funds become available.

Show Lodging

MSRI does not hire an outside company to make hotel reservations for our workshop participants, or share the names and email addresses of our participants with an outside party. If you are contacted by a business that claims to represent MSRI and offers to book a hotel room for you, it is likely a scam. Please do not accept their services.

MSRI has preferred rates at the Hotel Shattuck Plaza, depending on room availability. Guests can call the hotel's main line at 510-845-7300 and ask for the MSRI- Mathematical Science Research Institute discount. To book online visit this page (the MSRI rate will automatically be applied).

MSRI has preferred rates at the Graduate Berkeley, depending on room availability. Reservations may be made by calling 510-845-8981. When making reservations, guests must request the MSRI preferred rate. Enter in the Promo Code MSRI123 (this code is not case sensitive).

MSRI has preferred rates at the Berkeley Lab Guest House, depending on room availability. Reservations may be made by calling 510-495-8000 or directly on their website. Select "Affiliated with the Space Sciences Lab, Lawrence Hall of Science or MSRI." When prompted for your UC Contact/Host, please list Chris Marshall (coord@msri.org).

MSRI has a preferred rates at Easton Hall and Gibbs Hall, depending on room availability. Guests can call the Reservations line at 510-204-0732 and ask for the MSRI- Mathematical Science Research Inst. rate.
