International audienceThis article is devoted to the introduction and study of a photoacoustic tomography model, an imaging technique based on the reconstruction of an internal photoacoustic source distribution from measurements acquired by scanning ultrasound detectors over a surface that encloses the body containing the source under study. In a nutshell, the inverse problem consists in determining absorption and diffusion coefficients in a system coupling a hyperbolic equation (acoustic pressure wave) with a parabolic equation (diffusion of the fluence rate), from boundary measurements of the photoacoustic pressure. Since such kinds of inverse problems are known to be generically ill-posed, we propose here an optimal control approach, introducing a penalized functional with a regularizing term in order to deal with such difficulties. The coefficients we want to recover stand for the control variable. We provide a mathematical analysis of this problem, showing that this approach makes sense. We finally write necessary first order optimality conditions and give preliminary numerical results
