Abstract: | Let (N, g) be a Riemannian manifold with the distance function d(x, y) and an open subset M subset of N. For x is an element of M we denote by D-x the distance difference function D-x:F x F -> R, given by D-x(z(1), z(2)) = d(x, z(1)) - d(x, z(2)), z(1), z(2) is an element of F = N \ M. We consider the inverse problem of determining the topological and the differentiable structure of the manifold M and the metric g vertical bar M on it when we are given the distance difference data, that is, the set F, the metric g vertical bar F, and the collection D(M) = {D-x; x is an element of M}. Moreover, we consider the embedded image D(M) of the manifold M, in the vector space C(F x F), as a representation of manifold M. The inverse problem of determining (M, g) from D(M) arises e.g. in the study of the wave equation on R x N when we observe in F the waves produced by spontaneous point sources at unknown points (t, x) is an element of R x M. Then D-x (z(1), z(2)) is the difference of the times when one observes at points z(1) and z(2) the wave produced by a point source at x that goes off at an unknown time. The problem has applications in hybrid inverse problems and in geophysical imaging. |
