The MFS for numerical boundary identification in two-dimensional harmonic problems.

*(English)*Zbl 1259.65194Summary: In this study, we briefly review the applications of the method of fundamental solutions to inverse problems over the last decade. Subsequently, we consider the inverse geometric problem of identifying an unknown part of the boundary of a domain in which the Laplace equation is satisfied. Additional Cauchy data are provided on the known part of the boundary. The method of fundamental solutions is employed in conjunction with regularization in order to obtain a stable solution. Numerical results are presented and discussed.
