This is the professional home page of Tony Liimatainen (mathematics). Here you can find information about my research and publications.

Research Interest

In my research I consider inverse problems and related problems in differential geometry. At the moment, I am focusing my research on inverse problems for nonlinear equations and geometric inverse problems.

Here are recent examples of my research:

The slides of the presentation are available here AIP Minimal surface slides

The slides of the presentation are available here IAS Minimal surface extended slides.

The slides of the presentation are available here Helsinki slides.

The slides of the presentations are available here Irvine 2024 slides and here Irvine 2021 slides. The recordings of the talks can be found from here Irvine 2024 presentation at YouTube and here Irvine 2021 presentation at YouTube.
