Book DetailsContemporary MathematicsVolume: 113; 1991; 251 ppMSC: Primary 00; Secondary 43; 44; 53
This book contains the proceedings of an AMSIMSSIAM Joint Summer Research Conference on Integral Geometry and Tomography, held in June 1989 at Humboldt State University in Arcata, California. The papers collected here represent current research in these two interrelated fields. The articles in pure mathematics range over such diverse areas as combinatorics, geometric inequalities, microlocal analysis, group theory, and harmonic analysis. The interplay between Lie group theory, geometry, harmonic analysis, and Radon transforms is well covered. The papers on tomography reflect current research on Xray computed tomography, as well as radiation dose planning, radar, and partial differential equations.
In addition to describing current research, this book provides a useful perspective on the interplay between the fields. For example, abstract theorems about Radon transforms are used to understand applied mathematics, while applied mathematics motivates some of the results in pure mathematics. Though directed at specialists in the field, the book would also be of interest to others who wish to understand current research in these areas and to witness how they relate to other branches of mathematics.
