The determination of a parabolic equation from initial and final data Academic Article uri icon


  • It is shown that an unknown, spatially-dependent coefficient a(i) in the parabolic equation ut △…(x);… can be determined fro;…nowledge of both initial and final data. An existence and uniqueness theorem is given and the continuous dependence of the function a(x) on the data is examined. © 1987 American Mathematical Society.
