We consider the inverse boundary value problem for the wave equation in a geometric setting. This problem gives, for example, an idealized model of seismic imaging when the speed of sound is anisotropic but time-independent. We present two recent results: one related to the case where the speed of sound is time-dependent (joint work with Y. Kian, arXiv:1606.07243) and the other to the case where the wave equation is vector valued (joint work with Y. Kurylev and G. Paternain, arXiv:1509.02645).
