# Mission Statement

The core research topics of the Computational Science Center are Inverse Problems and Image Analysis. The common thread among these areas is a canonical problem of recovery of an object (function or image) from partial or indirect information. Particular research topics are:

- Geometrical Modeling for Image Analysis.
- Mathematical Modeling and numerical simulations in Coupled Physics Imaging.
- Variational regularization methods for Image Analysis and Inverse Problems.
- Mathematical models for visual attention.

This presentation focuses, on the one hand, on the reconstruction of missing boundary data using the fictitious domain decomposition technique for the heat equation via a new robust algorithm that exploits the dynamic in time and we investigate the convergence analysis. On the other hand, on the identification of cavities in the two-dimensional linear elasticity system from the knowledge of partially overdetermined boundary data using the topological sensitivity analysis. we obtain the explicit formula of the topological derivative taking the energy-gap and L2-gap as cost functions, then we compare both functionals numerically. Several numerical experiments are illustrated to highlight the robustness and the accuracy of these two approaches.
