Solving inverse problems with Bayes’ theorem
Snapshots of modern mathematics from Oberwolfach
The goal of inverse problems is to find an unknown parameter based on noisy data. Such problems appear in a wide range of applications including geophysics, medicine, and chemistry. One method of solving them is known as the Bayesian approach. In this approach, the unknown parameter is modelled as a random variable to reflect its uncertain value. Bayes’ theorem is applied to update our knowledge given new information from noisy data.
