Course description

In the first part of the course we will introduce the major imaging modalities. We will start with the 2D Fourier transform as it repeatedly turns out to play a central role in understanding how images come about, and then use it to study optical imaging, tomography, and interferometric as well as diffraction-based techniques. We will then move to a study of the abstract notion of an ill-posed inverse problem, where we'll talk about the issues of uniqueness and stability, introduce regularization techniques and apply them to a selection of problems introduced in the first part. In addition to classical techniques we will touch upon sparsity, compressive sensing, and phase retrieval.
