Counterexamples to inverse problems for the wave equation

Abstract Full Text(HTML) Related Papers Cited by
  • We construct counterexamples to inverse problems for the wave operator on domains in $ \mathbb{R}^{n+1} $, $ n \ge 2 $, and on Lorentzian manifolds. We show that non-isometric Lorentzian metrics can lead to same partial data measurements, which are formulated in terms certain restrictions of the Dirichlet-to-Neumann map. The Lorentzian metrics giving counterexamples are time-dependent, but they are smooth and non-degenerate. On $ \mathbb{R}^{n+1} $ the metrics are conformal to the Minkowski metric.
