Retrieval of Timewise Coefficients in the Heat Equation from Nonlocal Overdetermination Conditions
Keywords:Neumann boundary problem, inverse problem, coefficient identification problem, nonlinear optimization, heat equation
This paper investigates the simultaneous recovery for two time-dependent coefficients for heat equation under Neumann boundary condition. This problem is considered under extra conditions of nonlocal type. The main issue with this problem is the solution unstable to small contamination of noise in the input data. The Crank-Nicolson finite difference method is utilized to solve the direct problem whilst the inverse problem is viewed as nonlinear optimization problem. The later problem is solved numerically using optimization toolbox from MATLAB. We found that the numerical results are accurate and stable.
