MathematicsMATH 264 Inverse Problems and Integral Geometry

Concepts of inverse problem and ill-posedness on the Hilbert scale. Approaches to inversion, regularization and implementation. In Euclidean geometry: Radon transform; X-ray transform; attenuated X-ray transform (Novikov's inversion formula); weighted transforms. Same topics in different geometric contexts: homogeneous spaces, manifolds with boundary. Non-linear problems: boundary rigidity, lens rigidity, inverse problems for connections. Courses 148, 204, 205, 206, and 208, are recommended for preparation.
