This Lecture Image and Geometry Processing III is concerned with mathematical analysis and numerical methods of computerized tomography. In particular we will focus on the following topics:

1. Introduction

Mathematical foundations:
2. Repetition: Fourier-Transformation
3. The Radon transform and inversion formulas
4. The inversion formula of Cormack
5. Uniqueness of the inverse Radon transform
6. Singular value decomposition of the Radon transform

Numerical Algorithms:
7. Repetition: The Shannon sampling theorem
8. Filtered backprojection
9. Fourier reconstruction
10. Kaczmarz's method
11. Application of Kaczmarz' method to inverse Radon transform
12. Direct algebraic methods
13. The inverse Radon problem for incomplete data
