We present some data fusion procedures based on the use of partial differential equations, optimization problems and some ideas drawn from the calculus of variations. We present two real situations in which these fusion procedures have been successfully applied: the fusion of remote sensed SAR and optical images, and the fusion of multifrequency electromagnetic scattering data obtained in a laboratory experiment. Some examples of fusion results obtained through the use of real data are shown at the end of the paper.
