Continuum Models and Inverse Problems

Supervisor: Prof. Florian Theil (Mathematics)

Estimating coefficients of continuum models from data is called an inverse problem. Solutions of inverse problems are not only determined by the laws of physics, but also by the choice of regularisation strategy. The aim of the project is predict the ageing behaviour of Lithium ion batteries by calibrating the regularisation against the data. Two possible approaches are available:

  1. Apply ideas from control theory to optimise the regularisation
  2. Compare the predictions of continuum models for ageing with experimental data
