Representation of ECMI in AIP2017

In the 9th Applied Inverse Problems Conference (AIP 2017), Hangzhou, China, two presentations were given by Adérito Araújo (vice president) and Leonidas Mindrinos (council member). Both of them were presented in the mini-symposium: ”Inverse problems in quantitative optical and electrical tomography” organized by L. Mindrinos (Computational Science Center, University of Vienna) and K. Knudsen (Technical […]

Students Project: Modeling X-ray tomography using low power lamps

In the occasion of celebrating 100 years of Radon transform, we were asked to model X-ray tomography experiments in a seminar room. The examples took place in the Computational Science Center (CSC) at the University of Vienna, Austria, under the supervision of Otmar Scherzer. The tomographic system was replaced by an overhead projector, modeling the […]

Modeling scattered electromagnetic waves

  by Leonidas Mindrinos (Computational Science Center, University of Vienna, Austria) In many applications, like material parameter investigation and nondestructive testing, arises the inverse problem of reconstructing the position, the shape and / or the properties of a cavity or an inclusion from given measurements. A good knowledge of the direct problem is necessary […]

100 Years of the Radon Transform

Next year will be the 100th anniversary of the publication of the paper “Über die Bestimmung von Funktionen durch ihre Integralwerte längs gewisser Mannigfaltigkeiten” by Johann Radon. On the occasion of this anniversary the Johann Radon Institute for Computational and Applied Mathematics (RICAM) is organizing a conference with the title: 100 Years of the Radon […]

Detecting cell motion during early embryogenesis

by Lukas F. Lang (RICAM, Austrian Academy of Sciences, Austria) l… Our main motivation is to estimate cell motion in time-lapse volumetric microscopy images depicting fluorescently labelled cells of a live zebrafish embryo. It has been only recently possible to obtain high-resolution observations of biological model organisms such as the zebrafish. Increasing spatial and temporal […]
