MS 01: Atmospheric tomography in adaptive optics

Mon, 27 March, 2017, 13:30–15:30, Room: UC 202DH


Tapio Helin and Daniela Saxenhuber


The conference aims at providing a historical exposition of the field of Radon transforms as well as highlighting recent trends. Atmospheric tomography is a central computational challenge in modern ground-based telescope imaging involving dynamical and (extremely) limited angle data. Both of these properties are current trends in the Radon transform related mathematical research. The aim of the minisymposium is to discuss recent developments in this topic and bring experts from the fields of mathematics and telescope imaging together.
