The contents of the ten lectures to be delivered by Prof. Kuchment will be on mathematical techniques, problems, results, and challenges of computed tomography (CT).

Classical tomographic modalities:
X-ray computed tomography, SPECT (single photon emission computed tomography), PET (positron emission tomography), MRI (magnetic resonance imaging), EIT (electrical impedance tomography), ultrasound tomography, and optical tomography

Novel hybrid methods currently being developed:
Thermoacoustic tomography and photoacoustic tomography (TAT/PAT), Magnetic resonance electrical impedance tomography (MREIT), Acousto-electric tomography (AET), Acousto-optical tomography (AOT), Magnetic resonance elastography (MRE) The issues to be discussed will include mathematical modeling, uniqueness of reconstruction, reconstruction formulas and algorithms, stability of reconstruction, range descriptions, and incomplete data effects.

The details of the lectures will be provided later.
