We develop a technique for identifying unknown coefficients in parabolic partial differential equations. The identification scheme is based on quasilinearization and is applied to both linear and nonlinear equations where the unknown coefficients may be spatially varying. Our investigation includes derivation, convergence, and numerical testing of the quasilinearization based identification scheme
