Special Issue "Probabilistic Methods for Inverse Problems"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 September 2018)
Inverse problems arise in many applications. Whatever the domain of application, when the unknown quantities on which we want to infer, and the quantities on which we can do measurements, and the mathematical relations linking them are identified, the problem then become inference. Deterministic regularization methods have been successfully developed and used. Two main difficulties still remain: How to choose the different criteria and how to weight them and how to quantify the uncertainties. In the three last decades, the probabilistic methods and, in particular, the Bayesian approach have shown their efficiency. The focus of this Special Issue is to have original papers on these probabilistic methods where the real advantages on regularization methods have been shown. The papers with real applications in different area such as biological and medical imaging, industrial nondestructive testing, radio astronomical, and geophysical imaging are preferred.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Entropy is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1500 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
