How can we differentiate between an underground stone and a landmine? A class of new numerical methods aims to address this question using globally convergent—rather than locally convergent—algorithms for coefficient inverse problems. Numerical results model imaging of the spatially distributed dielectric permittivity function in an environment where antipersonnel landmines are embedded along with stones.
