Reconstruction of Plane Figures from Two Projections

Part of the Applied and Numerical Harmonic Analysis book series (ANHA)


In this chapter, reconstruction of plane figures from their two-projection data is discussed together with its stability, based on the discrete approximation. For this purpose, we introduce the notion of type 1 modification against nonuniquely reconstructed figures, and a kind of weight function to classify them. Many interesting open problems remain concerning theoretical justification of proposed algorithms for nonunique cases.
