This volume contains the proceedings of the Seoul ICM 2014 Satellite
Conference on Imaging, Multi-scale and High-Contrast PDEs, held from
August 7–9, 2014, in Daejeon, Korea.

The mathematical analysis of partial differential equations
modelling materials, or tissues, presenting multiple scales has been a
very active area of research. The study of the corresponding imaging
or reconstruction problem is a more recent area. If the material
parameters of the partial differential equation present high contrast
ratio, then the solution to the PDE becomes particularly challenging
to analyze and compute. On the other hand, imaging in highly
heterogeneous media poses significant challenges to the mathematical
community.

The focus of this volume is on recent progress towards complete
understanding of the direct problem with high contrast or high
frequencies, and unified approaches to the inverse and imaging
problems for both small and large contrast or frequencies. Of
particular importance in imaging are shape representation techniques
and regularization approaches. Special attention is devoted to new
models and problems coming from physics leading to innovative imaging
and signal processing methods.

#### Readership

Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in applied math, inverse problems, and imaging PDEs.
