### Inverse Problems, Tomography, and Image Processing by Alexander G. Ramm

In this volume selected papers delivered at the special sessions on "Inverse problems" and "Tomography and image processing" are published. These sessions were organized by A. G. Ramm at the first international congress ofISAAC (International Society for Analysis, Appli- cations and Computing) which was held at the University of Delaware, June 3-7, 1997. The papers in this volume deal with a wide variety of problems including some theoretical and nu- merical problems arising in various inverse problems of interest in applications (Athanasiadis, Ramm and Stratis, Crosta, Gutman, Kamimura, Kochikov, Kuramshina and Yagola, Ramm, Yakhno, Yamamoto), in tomography (Faridani, Katsevich, Sharafutdinov), and in image pro- cessing (Lina, Schempp, Lobel, Pichot, Feraud and Barlaud, Weaver) These papers will be of interest to a wide audience including mathematicians, physicists, persons working in medical imaging, and theoretically oriented engineers.
