This comprehensive and unique reference work on astro-tomography is based on expanded and suitably edited contributions to the 1st International Workshop on Astro-tomography. The focus is on studying indirect imaging and subsequent reconstruction techniques with applications in all areas of observational astronomy, astrophysics and cosmology. Detailed subject and object indexes, together with a list of useful resources on the Internet, will help the reader to use this book in a most efficient way.
This is the only reference book on this topic Includes supplementary material: sn.pub/extras Zusammenfassung "Indirect imaging has become the norm in studies of cataclysmic binaries and related objects - but after more than 15 years this is the first book to document the techniques in a systematic way. It is therefore extremely welcome and is indispensable reading for all users of these techniques. [...] This is a book to keep close to your desk if you are working in this area."
