Under consideration is a nonclassical stationary problem on heat
conduction in a body with the pre-set surface temperature and heat flow. The
body contains inclusions at unknown locations and with unknown boundaries. The
body and inclusions have different constant thermal conductivities. The author
explores the possibility of locating inclusions. The article presents an
integral criterion based on which a few statements on identification of
inclusions in a body are proved.
The release of the
Mid Staffordshire hospital report otherwise called the Francis report once
again ignited the debate about the issue of abuse of especially vulnerable
