Abstract A Bayesian approach to object location in electrical tomography is presented. The direct
problem, which is traditionally modelled by domain discretization methods such as finite-element and
finite-difference methods, is reformulated using a straightforward but ultimately powerful implementation
of the boundary-element method.
