Splitting the one-Dimensional Wave Equation, Part II: Additional Data are Given by an End Displacement Measurement
In this research, an unknown space-dependent force function in the wave equation is studied. This is a natural continuation of  and chapter 2 of  and , where the finite difference method (FDM)/boundary element method (BEM), with the separation of variables method, were considered. Additional data are given by the one end displacement measurement. Moreover, it is a continuation of , with exchanging the boundary condition, where are extra data, by the initial condition. This is an ill-posed inverse force problem for linear hyperbolic equation. Therefore, in order to stabilize the solution, a zeroth-order Tikhonov regularization method is provided. To assess the accuracy, the minimum error between exact and numerical solutions for the force is computed for various regularization parameters. Numerical results are presented and a good agreement was obtained for the exact and noisy data.
