Gonzaga's Mathematics Department will host two regular meetings every month of the academic year.

The Mathematics of Electrical Impedance Tomography: Basics and Beyond
Electrical impedance tomography (EIT) is an imaging technique in which the electrical conductivity distribution within an object is reconstructed using only surface current and voltage data, thus forming an image of internal structures. Since EIT is inexpensive, portable, and safe, there are many exciting potential applications of EIT in both medical and industrial imaging. EIT is an active area of research in both engineering and applied mathematics, with theory steeped in PDEs and inverse problems. This talk will begin with an overview of EIT, including images and videos of real-life EIT scans. We then move on to the mathematics of the underlying inverse problem and the direct D-bar solution technique, which has its roots in inverse quantum scattering theory. We will conclude with some recent research results and future directions.
