Nash strategies for the inverse inclusion Cauchy-Stokes problem

Abstract : We introduce a new algorithm to solve the problem of detecting unknown cavities immersed in a stationary viscous fluid, using partial boundary measurements. The considered fluid obeys a steady Stokes regime, the cavities are inclusions and the boundary measurements are a single compatible pair of Dirichlet and Neumann data, available only on a partial accessible part of the whole boundary. This inverse inclusion Cauchy-Stokes problem is ill-posed for both the cavities and missing data reconstructions, and designing stable and efficient algorithms is not straightforward. We reformulate the problem as a three-player Nash game. Thanks to an identifiability result derived for the Cauchy-Stokes inclusion problem, it is enough to set up two Stokes boundary value problems, then use them as state equations. The Nash game is then set between 3 players, the two first targeting the data completion while the third one targets the inclusion detection. We used a level-set approach to get rid of the tricky control dependence of functional spaces, and we provided the third player with the level-set function as strategy, with a cost functional of Kohn-Vogelius type. We propose an original algorithm, which we implemented using Freefem++. We present 2D numerical experiments for three different test-cases.The obtained results corroborate the efficiency of our 3-player Nash game approach to solve parameter or shape identification for Cauchy problems.
