The Calderón problem with partial data


In this paper we improve an earlier result by Bukhgeim and Uhlmann [1] showing that in dimension $n\ge 3$, the knowledge of the Cauchy data for the Schrödinger equation measured on possibly very small subsets of the boundary determines uniquely the potential. We follow the general strategy of [1] but use a richer set of solutions to the Dirichlet problem. This implies a similar result for the problem of Electrical Impedance Tomography which consists in determining the conductivity of a body by making voltage and current measurements at the boundary.
