Abstract [en]

The sideways parabolic equation (SPE) is a model of the problem of determiningthe temperature on the surface of a body from the interior measurements. Mathematically it can beformulated as a noncharacteristic Cauchy problem for a parabolic partial differential equation. Thisproblem is severely ill-posed in an L2 setting. We use a preconditioned generalized minimum residualmethod (GMRES) to solve a two-dimensional SPE with variable coefficients. The preconditioner issingular and chosen in a way that allows efficient implementation using the FFT. The preconditioneris a stabilized solver for a nearby problem with constant coefficients, and it reduces the numberof iterations in the GMRES algorithm significantly. Numerical experiments are performed thatdemonstrate the performance of the proposed method.
