Summary "In this text, integral geometry deals with Radon's problem of representing a function on a manifold in terms of its integrals over certain submanifolds- hence the term the Radon transform ... While containing some recent research, the book is aimed at beginning graduate students for classroom use or self-study. A number of exercises point to further results with documentation."--Back cover
