First solution basis vector.

First solution basis vector obtained in solving the Laplace equation using the singular value decomposition. This field arises from the need to solve practical problems with incomplete, contradictory and erroneous data and is an example of an inverse method. (Image courtesy of Prof. Carl Wunsch.)
