An inverse problem for the Vlasov–Poisson system

Fikret Gölgeleyen and Masahiro Yamamoto


In this paper, we discuss an inverse problem for the Vlasov–Poisson system. We prove local uniqueness and stability theorems by using the method in Anikonov and Amirov [Dokl. Akad. Nauk SSSR 272 (1983), 1292–1293] under the specular reflection boundary condition and with a prescribed outward electrical field at the boundary.
