Tuesday 30 November; Leiden, Joost Batenburg "Imaging from severely limited observations: risks and potential"



Location: de Sitterzaal

Time: 13:00 - 13:40 hrs

Tomography is a powerful technique for revealing the interior of an object without taking it apart. Based on a series of projection images, taken from a range of angles, a three-dimensional image of the object is computed by a reconstruction algorithm. This talk deals with the problem of image reconstruction from severely limited data, where traditional algorithms are useless. Is it possible to extract meaningfull results from such data? And what are the risks involved in doing so?
