GLOBAL UNIQUENESS FOR THE CALDERÓN PROBLEM WITH LIPSCHITZ CONDUCTIVITIES

  • PEDRO CARO (a1) (a2) and KEITH M. ROGERS (a3)
Abstract

We prove uniqueness for the Calderón problem with Lipschitz conductivities in higher dimensions. Combined with the recent work of Haberman, who treated the three- and four-dimensional cases, this confirms a conjecture of Uhlmann. Our proof builds on the work of Sylvester and Uhlmann, Brown, and Haberman and Tataru who proved uniqueness for $C^{1}$ -conductivities and Lipschitz conductivities sufficiently close to the identity.
