From the introduction: We show that the problem \[ \Delta^n u+ c_1\Delta^{n- 1}u+\cdots+ c_nu= 0, \] \[ u(x)|_{\Gamma_1}= \varphi_1(x),\dots, u(x)|_{\Gamma_n}= \varphi_n(x), \] where the closed contours \(\Gamma_k\) bound the domains \(D_k\); moreover, \(D_1\subset D_2\subset\cdots\subset D_n\subseteq D\), is ill-posed. An important role is played by the conditional stability of the problem. In particular, we consider the conditional stability for \(n= 2\), i.e., we consider the fourth-order equation \[ K_4 u=\Delta^2 u+ c_1\Delta u+ c_2 u=0, \] when the contours \(\Gamma_1\) and \(\Gamma_2\) have the form of concentric circumferences with the radii \(R_1\) and \(R_2\), respectively, \(R_2> R_1\).
