Abstract: In this paper we consider resolution estimates in both the linearized conductivity problem and the wave imaging problem. Our purpose is to provide explicit formulas for the resolving power of the measurements in the presence of measurement noise. We show that the low-frequency regime in wave imaging and the inverse conductivity problem are very sensitive to measurement noise, while high frequencies increase stability in wave imaging.
