**Publisher**: Birkhauser Boston 1999**ISBN/ASIN**: 0817641092**ISBN-13**: 9780817641092**Number of pages**: 196

**Description**:

The Radon transform is an important topic in integral geometry which deals with the problem of expressing a function on a manifold in terms of its integrals over certain submanifolds. Solutions to such problems have a wide range of applications, namely to partial differential equations, group representations X-ray technology, nuclear magnetic resonance scanning, and tomography.
