We investigate level-set type approaches for solving ill-posed inverse problems, under the assumption that the solution is a piecewise constant function. Our goal is to identify the level sets as well as the level values of the unknown parameter function. Two distinct level-set frameworks are proposed for solving the inverse problem. In both of them the level-set function is assumed to be in L2. Corresponding Tikhonov regularization approaches are derived and analyzed. Existence of minimizers for the Tikhonov functionals is proven. Moreover, convergence and stability results of the variational approaches are established, characterizing the Tikhonov approaches as regularization methods.
