LOCAL EXISTENCE AND GLOBAL UNIQUENESS IN ONE DIMENSIONAL NONLINEAR HYPERBOLIC INVERSE PROBLEMS Choi, Jong-Sung;
We prove local existence and global uniqueness in one dimensional nonlinear hyperbolic inverse problems. The basic key for showing the local existence of inverse solution is the principle of contracted mapping. As an application, we consider a hyperbolic inverse problem with damping term.
