Inverse Potential Problems for Divergence of Measures with Total Variation Regularization

Abstract : We study inverse problems for the Poisson equation with source term thedivergence of an $R3-valued$ measure; that is, the potential $Φ$ satisfies $∆Φ = divμ$,and $μ$ is to be reconstructed knowing (a component of) the field grad $Φ$ on a set dis-joint from the support of $μ$. Such problems arise in several electro-magnetic contextsin the quasi-static regime, for instance when recovering a remanent magnetization from measurements of its magnetic field. We develop methods for recovering $μ$ based on totalvariation regularization. We provide sufficient conditions for the unique recovery of $μ$, asymptotically when the regularization parameter and the noise tend to zero in a combined fashion, when it is uni-directional or when the magnetization has a support whichis sparse in the sense that it is purely 1-unrectifiable.Numerical examples are provided to illustrate the main theoretical results.
