Determining a Coefficient in a First-Order Hyperbolic Equation Academic Article uri icon


  • This paper deals with an inverse problem for a first-order hyperbolic equation: namely, the determination of the coefficient λ(a, t, p) in pt+ pa+ λp = 0. Conditions on the imposed data that lead to a unique solution are presented and an algorithm for the reconstruction of the coefficient is given.
