M3: Recent Developments in Inverse Problems and Tomography

Minisymposium dedicated to the 65th anniversary of an outstanding expert in inverse problems  Professor E. Todd Quinto

Tomography is one of the prominent examples of inverse problems. It became generally known in the seventies when medical diagnosis was revolutionized by X-ray computed tomography. The mathematical model is formulated as integral transform, in the classical case the Radon transform. Meanwhile, other imaging technologies lead to more complicated transforms, linear and nonlinear problems. Nevertheless some classical problems, like limited-data tomography are still nowadays   considered as challenge. Cone-Beam tomography, ultrasound tomography, multi-modal imaging and time-dependent problems are other examples of frontiers of research. All these technologies have in common that the mathematical models are inverse and obviously ill-posed problems.

The minisymposium brings together well established scientists and young researchers introducing new ideas in the field. All celebrate one of the pioneers of the mathematics of tomography, Prof. Eric Todd Quinto, on the occasion of his65th birthday.
