Celebrating the Radon Transform

A century ago, the paper  “Über die Bestimmung von Funktionen durch ihre Integralwerte längs gewisser Mannigfaltigkeiten” has been published by Johann Radon in Berichte über die Verhandlungen der Königlich-Sächsischen Gesellschaft der Wissenschaften zu Leipzig. Mathematisch-Physische Klasse, Band 69, 1917, Seiten 262–277, which laid, by the Radon transform, the basis of computerized tomography. From Marc 27 to March 31, […]
