This book was originally published in 2003. Inverse problems arise in practical situations such as medical imaging, geophysical exploration, and non-destructive evaluation where measurements made on the exterior of a body are used to determine properties of the inaccessible interior. There have been substantial developments in the mathematical theory of inverse problems, and applications have expanded greatly. In this volume, leading experts in the theoretical and applied aspects of inverse problems offer extended surveys on several important topics in modern inverse problems, such as microlocal analysis, reflection seismology, tomography, inverse scattering, and X-ray transforms. Each article covers a particular topic or topics with an emphasis on accessibility and integration with the whole volume. Thus the collection can be at the same time stimulating to researchers and accessible to graduate students.

Review of the hardback: 'It's a perfect introduction for students who want to learn the basic techniques with mathematical rigor and in a mathematical language ... the book is admirably clear and does a good job in motivating the reader ... It's safe to say that Uhlmann's book is a fingerpost in mathematical imaging for some time to come.' Bulletin of the American Mathematical Society
