A Duality in Integral Geometry. Generalized Radon Transforms and Orbital Integrals

  • Sigurdur Helgason
Part of the Progress in Mathematics book series (PM, volume 5)


The inversion formulas in Theorems 3.1, 3.5, 3.6 and 6.2, Ch. I suggest the general problem of determining a function on a manifold by means of its integrals over certain submanifolds.
