In the Applied Sciences, the use of  mathematical modeling and calibration tools  ranging from partial differential equations to stochastic analysis and numerical methods has been growing steadily during the past few decades. Calibration techniques, in turn, require handling highly complex and ill-posed problems. This special quarter is geared towards bringing together a number of researchers and graduate students working in different aspects of Inverse Problems.
