[UPDATE] This is the last post for this problem.

A couple of weeks ago, I came up with the solution by using moving frame which was learned in Differential Equation class long time ago. Briefly speaking, it is a good piece of work, in constructing special solution, and a nice try with coordinate transformation.

Inverse Problem: on point source.

Now I simply list my trials in probing the path to the solution.

- As I mentioned in last post, I would like to continue using the same technique, with a CGO-like approach, however, after a long time of trials, I gave up with this method. This method will give out a very impressive and concise representation of the problem:
,

after we multiply to the equation, it will morph into divergence form.

.

To my knowledge of this degenerate elliptic equation, we need to apply weighted Sobolev space theory, but unfortunately the theory cannot rule out the existence of singularities, and I came up with a counterexample for that. However, I still believe this method can be promising in 2D case.

- For series form, if we require the coefficients of expansion as analytic series, i.e.
, where

This can give a recursion formula for the problem, but the analytic property will force the problem to be unsolvable. What a pity.
