Self-contained course on the theoretical aspects of the reconstruction of geometric objects from tomographic projection and section data.
Introduction to geometric tomography and understanding of various theoretical aspects of reconstruction problems.
The problem of reconstruction of an object from geometric information like X-ray data is a classical inverse problem on the overlap between applied mathematics, statistics, computer science and electrical engineering. We focus on various aspects of the problem in the case of prior shape information on the reconstruction object. We will answer questions on uniqueness of the reconstruction and also cover statistical and algorithmic aspects.
