Abstract : The program in inverse problems included three months of concentration on inverse scattering and spectral problems, ocean acoustic, exploration geophysics, medical imaging and computerized tomography, and nondestructive evaluation. There were two tutorials. The first one was on inverse problems in electromagnetic wave propagation and the second one was on inverse problems in acoustic wave propagation. This was followed by two weeks workshop organized by Bill Symes, G. Papanicolaou, Paul Sacks, K.T. Smith, Guy Chavent and Jan Achenback. The workshop brought together approximately 120 researchers from both university and industry, working on different aspects of inverse problems, and we expect that many new research contacts were initiated during this period.
