Talks and Lecture Notes


  1. Noise in linear inverse problems. A Powerpoint presentation, requires MS Office or this.

  2. Semiclassical sampling and linear inverse problems. A Powerpoint presentation, requires MS Office or this.

  3. Local Lens Rigidity (based on a joint work with Uhlmann and Vasy), 2017. It is a 56mb Powerpoint presentation and requires MS Office or the free PP viewer.

  5. Traveltime Tomography with Local Data, 2013-2014.

  6. The identification problem in SPECT: Uniqueness, non-uniqueness and stability, 2013.

  7. Is a curved flight path in SAR better than a straight one?, talk I gave at Stanford, 2012.

  8. Thermoacoustic and Photoacoustic Tomography with a variable continuous or discontinuous sound speed,  MSRI, November 2010.

  9. Recovering Anisotropic Metrics from Travel Times, a plenary talk at the First International Congress of IPIA. Conference on Applied Inverse Problems 2007: Theoretical and Computational Aspects

Lecture Notes and a book project

  1. Traveltime Tomography and Tensor Tomography, MSRI, July 2009, lecture notes. Lecture 1, Lectures 2&3, Lecture 4.

  2. Mini-course on Microlocal methods in TAT, Fields Institute: Lecture 1 (Uniqueness), Lecture 2&3 (Microlocal stuff), Lecture 4 (Stability and Partial data), Lecture 5 ("brain imaging"). Pictures and movies that I showed, all created by Francois Monard.
