An Introduction to the Mathematics of Tomography

Monday, January 9, 2006 - 9:30am - 10:30am
EE/CS 3-180
Eric Quinto (Tufts University)
The speaker will provide an overview of the Radon transform, showing
its relationship with X-ray tomography and other tomographic problems.
He will also describe the filtered back projection inversion formula
and contrast it with Lambda tomography. Finally, he plans to give an
elementary introduction to microlocal analysis and its implications
for limited data tomography. Sample reconstructions (tomography
pictures) will be provided to illustrate the ideas.
