A necessity of solving of inverse problems occurs in many branches of industry [1,2]. In general, inverse problems can be defined as problems where the cause is determined based on known results. For example, if four streams join to form a river and four factories are putting known amounts of a pollutant into the streams, it is easy to determine the resultant level of the pollutant in the river. This is a classic *direct problem*. However, a more difficult problem is to determine how much pollutant each factory introduces into each stream by knowing a total amount of the pollutant measured downstream of the place where the streams flow into the river. This is a classical *inverse problem* [3]. Obviously, to solve this inverse problem, it is not enough to know the total resultant pollutant. It is necessary to measure the pollution in the river closer to each of the streams.
