Abstract:   We survey recent progress in inverse boundary problems. In these problems one attempts to determine the internal properties of a medium by making measurements at the boundary of the medium. In particular we will consider the problem of determining a Riemannian metric on a Riemannian manifold with boundary by making measurements at the boundary. We shall consider also the inverse problem of determining a potential or a conductivity on a bounded domain in Euclidean space from partial information on the Dirichlet-to-Neumann map for the associated Schroedinger equation or conductivity equation.
