Abstract: In this article we prove support theorems for Radon transforms with arbitrary nonzero real analytic measures on line complexes (three-dimensional sets of lines) in $ {\mathbb{R}^3}$. Let $ f$ be a distribution of compact support on $ {\mathbb{R}^3}$. Assume $ Y$ is a real analytic admissible line complex and $ {Y_0}$ is an open connected subset of $ Y$ with one line in $ {Y_0}$ disjoint from supp$ \;f$. Under weak geometric assumptions, if the Radon transform of $ f$ is zero for all lines in $ {Y_0}$, then supp$ \;f$ intersects no line in $ {Y_0}$. These theorems are more general than previous results, even for the classical transform. We also prove a support theorem for the Radon transform on a nonadmissible line complex. Our proofs use analytic microlocal analysis and information about the analytic wave front set of a distribution at the boundary of its support.
