The Banff International Research Station will host the "Inverse Problems and Nonlinearity" workshop in Banff from July 16 to July 21, 2023.

We will use nonlinearity naturally arising in many equations in mathematical physics to facilitate the imaging image reconstruction. This breaks with the traditional doctrine that the presence of nonlinearity is an obstacle rather than a tool for understanding differential equations.

The Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) is a collaborative Canada-US-Mexico venture that provides an environment for creative interaction as well as the exchange of ideas, knowledge, and methods within the Mathematical Sciences, with related disciplines and with industry. The research station is located at The Banff Centre in Alberta and is supported by Canada's Natural Science and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF), Alberta's Advanced Education and Technology, and Mexico's Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología (CONACYT).
