Limits of Resolution (Hardcover) (Geoffrey De Villiers & E. Roy Pike)
about this item
This book brings together the concept of resolution, which limits what we can determine about our physical world, with linear inverse problems, with an emphasis on showcasing real examples and practical applications. The book focuses on methods for solving illposed problems that do not have unique stable solutions. After introducing basic concepts, the contents address problems with “continuous” data in detail before turning to cases of discrete data sets. As one of the unifying principles of the text, the authors explain how non-uniqueness is a feature of measurement problems in science where precision and resolution is essentially always limited by some kind of noise.
