abstract = "COmet Nucleus Sounding Experiment by Radio Wave Transmission (CONSERT) is one of 20
experiments onboard the ESA mission Rosetta and aimed at the reconstruction of the unknown internal
material parameter distribution of a comet nucleus. The details on the experiment setup can be found
in \cite{kof07},\cite{kof01}. CONSERT consists of a lander module which attaches to the
surface of the comet and an orbiter module which circulates the comet in space. An electromagnetic
sounding of the comet nucleus will be achieved by a signal link between the lander and orbiter
antenna system. We propose an optimal control approach to solve for the unknown 3D material
parameter distribution of the comet nucleus. We optimize the computed electromagnetic field
distribution at the receiver locations for the measured (observed) electromagnetic field
distribution by controlling the material parameters. The target functional, the difference between
computed and observed field for all receiver locations and time steps is minimized by means of a
gradientbased quasiNewton optimization algorithm. The optimal control problem is solved if the
target functional yields its global minimum.",
