ICIAM-SIAM-2011 Minisymposium on 'Composites and Inversion: Asymptotic and Computational Methods', July 18 – 22, 2011, Vancouver, BC, Canada
This minisyposium focuses on the mathematical aspects of materials science for inhomogeneous media and the inverse problems arising from probing them.
Organizers:
M. Yvonne Ou, Department of Mathematical Sciences, University of Delaware
Shari Moskow, Department of Mathematics, Drexel University


SIAM-2009 annual Meeting, Minisymposium on 'Mathematical Strategies for Modelling Trabecular/Cancellous Bone and Associated Inverse Problems', July 06 – 10, 2009, Denver, CO
Quantitative Ultrasound (QUS) is an established, FDA-approved clinical modality for estimating bone fracture risk associated with osteoporosis. The QUS parameters, esp. SOS and BUA have been empirically shown to explain only some portion of bone quality. Special emphasis of the minisymposium is on the mathematical model's feasibility and relevance to parameter estimation, and methods for solving the associated inverse problem.
