Abstract: This paper is concerned with the identification of the geometrical structure of the system boundary for a two-dimensional diffusion system. The domain identification problem treated here is converted into an optimization problem based on a fit-to-data criterion and theoretical convergence results for approximate identification techniques are discussed. Results of numerical experiments to demonstrate the efficacy of the theoretical ideas are reported.
