 One of the most exciting features of the fields of Radon transforms and tomography is the strong relationship between highlevel pure mathematics and applications to areas such as medical imaging and industrial nondestructive evaluation. The proceedings featured in this volume bring together fundamental research articles in the major areas of Radon transforms and tomography. This volume includes expository papers that are of special interest to beginners as well as advanced researchers. Topics include local tomography and wavelets, Lambda tomography and related methods, tomographic methods in RADAR, ultrasound, Radon transforms and differential equations, and the Pompeiu problem. The major themes in Radon transforms and tomography are represented among the research articles. Pure mathematical themes include vector tomography, microlocal analysis, twistor theory, Lie theory, wavelets, harmonic analysis, and distribution theory. The applied articles employ highquality pure mathematics to solve important practical problems. Effective scanning geometries are developed and tested for a NASA wind tunnel. Algorithms for limited electromagnetic tomographic data and for impedance imaging are developed and tested. Range theorems are proposed to diagnose problems with tomography scanners. Principles are given for the design of Xray tomography reconstruction algorithms, and numerical examples are provided. This volume offers readers a comprehensive source of fundamental research useful to both beginners and advanced researchers in the fields. Readership Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in integral transforms, harmonic analysis, numerical analysis, and partial differential equations, and in particular Radon transforms and tomography.
