 In this book the authors present a number of examples which lead to illposed problems arising with the processing and interpretation of data of physical measurements. Basic postulates and some results in the general theory of illposed problems follow. The exposition also includes problems of analytic continuation from continua and discrete sets, analogous problems of continuation of solutions of elliptic and parabolic equations, the main illposed boundary value problem for partial differential equations, and results on the theory of Volterra equations of the first kind. A very broad presentation is given of modern results on the problem of uniqueness in integral geometry and on inverse problems for partial differential equations.
