Abstract:
The reconstruction of a function on the rotation group from mean values along all geodesics is an overdetermined problem, i.e., it is sufficient to know the mean values for a three dimensional subset of all geodesics on the rotation group. In this paper we give a Fourier slice theorem for the restricted problem. Based on the Fourier slice theorem and fast Fourier transforms on the rotation group and the sphere we introduce a fast algorithm for the forward transform. Analyzing the inverse problem we come up with an exact inversion formula for bandlimited functions on the rotation group. Unfortunately, this inversion formula turns out to be extremely ill conditioned. Therefore, we introduce an iterative approach which makes use of regularization and the fast algorithm for the forward transform. Numerical experiments indicate the applicability of our algorithms.
