Abstract: We develop an analytic approach to the Radon transform , where is a function on the affine Grassmann manifold of -dimensional planes in , and is a -dimensional plane in the similar manifold . For , we prove that this transform is finite almost everywhere on if and only if , and obtain explicit inversion formulas. We establish correspondence between Radon transforms on affine Grassmann manifolds and similar transforms on standard Grassmann manifolds of linear subspaces of . It is proved that the dual Radon transform can be explicitly inverted for , and interpreted as a direct, ``quasi-orthogonal" Radon transform for another pair of affine Grassmannians. As a consequence we obtain that the Radon transform and the dual Radon transform are injective simultaneously if and only if . The investigation is carried out for locally integrable and continuous functions satisfying natural weak conditions at infinity.
