This is a book specifically focused on the solution of inverse heat transfer problems, that is problems that, for instance, address the reconstruction of unknown heat fluxes, the determination of unknown thermophysical properties such as thermal conductivities and diffusivities, or the determination of unknown energy generation (source term) in the governing heat conduction equation. The authors focus on the Levenberg-Marquardt method and Alifanov’s method of iterative regularization for both parameter and...
