“DETERMINING THE SHAPE OF A HUMAN VOCAL TRACT”
Professor Tuncay Aktosun
Department of Mathematics
The inverse scattering problem is considered to determine the cross sectional area of a human vocal tract. Various data sets are examined resulting from a unit-amplitude, monochromatic, sinusoidal volume velocity sent from the glottis towards the lips. In case of nonuniqueness from a given data set, additional information is indicated for the unique recovery.
Dr. Aktosun is a Professor of Mathematics at UTA. He received
his Ph.D. in 1986 from
