** Inverse** typically means the opposite of something.

See:

- Antonym - A word with the opposite meaning.
- Inverse chain rule method - Related to integration and differentiation.
- Inverse element - an element
*x*^{−1}so that*x***x*^{−1}=*x*^{−1}**x*=*e*, where * is some binary operation and*e*is the identity element. - Inverse function - in mathematics, a function that "reverses" the action of a given function.
- Inverse gamblers fallacy - It says that if something improbable happens now, probable events must have happened in the past or the future. This is false.
- Inverse kinematic animation (IKA) - In computer animation, start animating from the end and go backwards for some tasks.

- Inverse multiplexer - Splits a signal into several signals, opposite of a multiplexer.
- Inverse (music) - Oppositional direction of voice movement.
- Inverse problem - The task of identifying model parameters from observed data. See, e.g., Inverse scattering, "inverse kinematics", "inverse dynamics".
- Inverse perspective - Also Byzantine perspective: the further the objects, the larger they are drawn.
- Inverse scattering - The problem to determine object's shape/properties from measurements of scattered radiation/particles.
- Inverse-square law - The magnitude of a force is proportional to the inverse square of the distance.
- Inverse transform sampling method - Generate some random numbers according to a given probability distribution.
