And that is what scientists often want to find out, because it tells them the parameters they need to populate the forward model described above. How are they ever going to find out the properties of rock hundreds of kilometres underground? They can’t put instruments there (and won’t be able to in the foreseeable future), so the only way is to solve the inverse problem. The most obvious and least efficient way to solve an inverse problem is by guessing. Try one set of parameter values, solve the forward problem, and see if it matches the observed data.

At this point the professor takes the opportunity to slip in a bit of trivia about his own brain – that it needs music, for example. He plays guitar in the Simula band, which also 33 34 The Mathematics of the Mind includes a vocalist, keyboard player, drummer and bass player, as well as an entire horn section.
