Title: Inverse problems for reconstructing inclusion and identifying
unknown parameter.

Abstract: In general, inverse problems are those where one needs to
recover the
unknown parameter of a system from the knowledge of the external
observation. In
this talk, I will mainly give an overview of Calder\'on’s inverse problems
in several linear and nonlinear partial differential equations. I will
discuss two
different kinds of inverse problems for the Maxwell system and p-Laplace
One is the parameter identification problems and another one is the shape
reconstruction issues. In particular, I will concentrate on the problem of
determining the conductivity of a medium and the shape of an inclusion
from the
knowledge of boundary voltage or current measurements.
