In this talk, we discuss topology optimization problem arises from inverse problem set up. We quickly review the concept of topological derivatives and it’s use in topology op- timization. To be more precise, It is well known that a huge class of inverse problems can be written in the form of overdetermined boundary value problems. Such a difficulty can be overcome by rewriting the inverse problem in the form of an optimization problem. The basic idea of this presentation consist in minimizing a functional measuring the misfit between a given data and a weak solution with respect to the parameters under consider- ation. The topological derivative concept is used. In particular, the objective functional is expanded and then truncated up to the second order term, leading to a quadratic and strictly convex form with respect to the parameters under consideration. Finally, a trivial optimization step will lead to a non-iterative second order reconstruction algorithm which does not depend on any initial guess. As a result, the reconstruction process will become very robust with respect to noisy data
