The solution of inverse non-linear elasticity problems that arise when locating breast tumours

Abstract:

Non-linear elasticity theory may be used to calculate the coordinates of a deformed body when the coordinates of the undeformed, stress-free body are known. In some situations, such as one of the steps in the location of tumours in a breast, the coordinates of the deformed body are known and the coordinates of the undeformed body are to be calculated, i.e. we require the solution of the inverse problem. Other than for situations where classical linear elasticity theory may be applied, the sim...
