Spring school & workshop: Inverse problems and approximation techniques in planetary sciences, 16-18 May 2018

INRIA, Sophia Antipolis, room Euler bleue.

Organizers: Laurent Baratchart, Sylvain Chevillard, Juliette Leblond, Equipe APICS – FACTAS.

A workshop and a school wil be combined during 3 days about inverse problems in harmonic electromagnetism and approximation, with applications mainly dedicated to geomagnetism and paleomagnetism.

They will more precisely concern direct and inverse problems of potential, of source and defaults detection and localization, of data extension, of conductivity or permittivity estimation from boundary data, together with the development of resolution algorithms. The techniques are related to harmonic analysis tools, like spherical harmonics r other families of special functions, Hodge decomposition principles, approximation theory and constrained optimization, Fourier analysis, …

Applications to geosciences and planetary sciences concern in particular geomagnetism, subsoil prospection, paleomagnetism, gravimetry, source imaging, processing of stellar signals, measures protocols and steering of instruments.

The school and the workshop are open to Master or PhD students and of course to post-doctoral researchers, researchers, professors, engineers.

Expected talks and courses will be given by the organizers and the following speakers (list to be confirmed):

  • Christian Gerhards (Computational Science Center, Univ. Vienna, Austria),
  • Doug Hardin (Department of Math., Vanderbilt Univ., Nashville, TN, USA),
  • Eduardo A. Lima (Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences, MIT, Cambridge, MA, USA),
  • Yoann Quesnel (CEREGE-CNRS, Univ. Aix-Marseille, Aix-en Provence, France),
  • Edward B. Saff (Department of Math., Vanderbilt Univ., Nashville, TN, USA),
  • Mark Wieczorek (Observatoire de la Côte d’Azur, Nice, France).

The organization is supported by C4PO (UCA Jedi), INRIA Sophia Antipolis, and the team APICS – FACTAS.
