Abstract
This thesis presents a theoretical and numerical analysis of a general mathematical formulation of hybrid inverse problems in impedance tomography. This includes problems from several existing hybrid imaging modalities such as Current Density Impedance Imaging, Magnetic Resonance Electrical Impedance Tomography, and Ultrasound Modulated Electrical Impedance Tomography. After giving an introduction to hybrid inverse problems in impedance tomography and the mathematical tools that facilitate the related analysis, we explain in detail the stability properties associated with the classification of a linearised hybrid inverse problem. This is done using pseudodifferential calculus and theory for overdetermined boundary value problem. Using microlocal analysis we then present novel results on the propagation of singularities, which give a precise description of the distinct features of solutions in the case of a nonelliptic problem.
To conduct a numerical analysis, we develop four iterative reconstruction methods using the Picard and Newton iterative schemes, and the unified approach to the reconstruction problem encompasses several algorithms suggested in the literature. The algorithms are implemented numerically in two dimensions and the properties of the algorithms and their implementations are investigated theoretically. Novel numerical results are presented for both the full and partial data problem, and they show similarities and differences between the proposed algorithms, which are closely linked to the results of the theoretical analysis. The findings in this thesis justify that the choice of algorithm should be based on a theoretical analysis of the underlying inverse problem.
