Abstract: We present direct, group-theoretic proofs of the range theorem for the Radon $ d$-plane transform $ f \to \hat f$ on $ \mathcal{S}({\mathbb{R}^n})$. (The original proof, by Richter, involves extensive use of local coordinate calculations on $ G(d,n)$, the Grassmann manifold of affine $ d$-planes in $ {\mathbb{R}^n}$.) We show that moment conditions are not sufficient to describe this range when $ d < n - 1$, in contrast to the compactly supported case. Finally, we show that the dual $ d$-plane transform maps $ \mathcal{E}(G(d,n))$ surjectively onto $ \mathcal{E}({\mathbb{R}^n})$.
