The thesis of M. Åkerblom titled Quantitative Tree Reconstruction from Terrestrial Laser Scanning Data and Applications was defended in late May and the thesis is available online.
About the team
Inverse problems are by definition ill-posed either in the sense of solution existence and uniqueness, or stability. Traditionally, inverse problems are application oriented, although there are also pure mathematical problems that are considered to be inverse problems.
Our team is one of the research teams at the Department of Mathematics at Tampere University of Technology. Our team studies inverse problems and several of their applications, varying from microscaled biology to understanding phenomena at galactic scales.
Our projects are part of the research programme of the Finnish Centre of Excellence in Inverse Problems Research and they have been funded by the Academy of Finland since 2006. In the period 2018-2026 the funding continues under the title Centre of Excellence in Inverse Modelling and Imaging. Additional funding is provided by Tampere University of Technology.
A recent publication was added to the publication list. The article titled "Distribution of shape elongations of main belt asteroids derived from Pan-STARRS1 photometry" was published in Astronomy & Astrophysics in early April.
New software package for finite element based EEG and MEG forward and inverse simulations called Zeffiro interface, now available. The Matlab-written tool can perform simulations using both CPUs and GPUs.
The terrestrial laser scanning revolution in forest ecology special issue of Interface Focus is now available. We collaborated on three of the research articles, all available open access: 1) Non-intersecting leaf insertion algorithm for tree structure models; 2) Uncertainty in multispectral lidar signals caused by incidence angle effects; and 3) Weighing trees with lasers: advances, challenges and opportunities.
