**About Book**
**Review**
‘Tarantola's book is undoubtedly the most important work on probabilistic inverse theory. It presents a complete theory where a physical parameter is represented, not by a number, but by a probability distribution.’ Klaus Mosegaard, Niels Bohr Institute
**Book Description**
The use of actual observations to infer the properties of a model is an inverse problem, which are often difficult as they may not have a unique solution. This book proposes a general approach that is valid for linear as well as for nonlinear problems. The philosophy is essentially probabilistic and allows the reader to understand the basic difficulties appearing in the resolution of inverse problems. The book attempts to explain how a method of acquisition of information can be applied to actual real-world problems, including many heuristic arguments. Prompted by recent developments in inverse theory, this text is a completely rewritten version of a 1987 book by the same author, and includes many algorithmic details for Monte Carlo methods, least-squares discrete problems, and least-squares problems involving functions. In addition, some notions are clarified, the role of optimization techniques is underplayed, and Monte Carlo methods are taken much more seriously. ## Related Free eBooks - Elements for Physics Quantities, Qualities, and Intrinsic Theories
