Numerical methods for piecewise constant Robin coefficient
- College of Mathematics and Statistics, Hanshan Normal University, Chaozhou, Guangdong, 521041, P. R. China.
In this paper, we consider a numerical method for reconstructing piecewise constant Robin coefficients from boundary
measurements. An adaptive total variation functional is proposed. The boundary integral equation method is utilized for
discretizing the functional, and the Gauss-Newton method is employed for solving the non-linear problem.
