Abstract:
The inversion of the one--dimensional Radon transform on the rotation group SO(3) is an ill posed inverse problem which applies to X--ray tomography with polycrystalline materials. This communication presents a novel approach to the numerical inversion of the one--dimensional Radon transform on SO(3). Based on a Fourier slice theorem the discrete inverse Radon transform of a function sampled on the product space $\mathbb S^2 \times \mathbb S^2$ of two two--dimensional spheres is determined as the solution of a minimization problem, which is iteratively solved using fast Fourier techniques for $\mathbb S^2$ and SO(3). The favorable complexity and stability of the algorithm based on these techniques has been confirmed with numerical tests.
