Some inverse problems for the diffusion equation. (English) Zbl 0918.35145

Summary: We outline some recent results about the uniqueness of recovery of some coefficients of parabolic partial differential equations \[ a_0\partial_tu- \text{div}(a\nabla u)+ cu= 0 \] when overdetermined data are prescribed at the final moment of time or on the lateral wall.
