Inverse problems are pervasive in fundamental science and have a strong impact on the horizons that can be achieved. There are many such unsolved problems that seriously limit technological innovation. Such problems span many disciplines from physics to biology to computer vision and beyond. Just two such problems from these extremes are the diffraction of electromagnetic waves and the structure of a protein molecule from its primary sequence of amino acids.
