PhD thesis Title:
Deep Learning for Inverting Borehole Resistivity Measurements
There exist multiple traditional methods to solve inverse problems, mainly, gradient-based or statistics-based methods. However, these methods have severe limitations. In particular, they often need to compute the forward problem hundreds of times, which is computationally expensive in three-dimensional (3D) problems.
In this dissertation, we propose the use of Deep Learning (DL) techniques to solve inverse problems. Although the training stage of a Deep Neural Network (DNN) may be time-consuming, after the network is properly trained it can forecast the solution in a fraction of a second, facilitating real-time operations. In the first part of this dissertation, we investigate appropriate loss functions to train a DNN when dealing with an inverse problem.
Additionally, to properly train a DNN that approximates the inverse solution, we require a large dataset containing the solution of the forward problem. To create such dataset, we need to solve aPartial Differential Equation (PDE) thousands of times. Building a dataset may be time-consuming, especially for two and three-dimensional problems since solving PDEs using traditional methods, such as the Finite Element Method (FEM), is computationally expensive. Thus, we want to reduce the computational cost of building the database needed to train the DNN. For this, we propose the use of rIGA methods.
In addition, we explore the possibility of using DL techniques to solve PDEs, which is the main computational bottleneck when solving inverse problems. Our main goal is to develop a fast forward simulator for solving parametric PDEs. As a first step, in this dissertation we analyze the quadrature problems that appear while solving PDEs using DNNs and propose different integration methods to overcome these limitations.
