Title:   Philomena Mader's  Inversion  Formulas for  Radon Transforms.

Place:   Room 919, Amado Mathematics Building, Technion
Abstract: In 1927 Philomena Mader derived elegant inversion formulas for
the hyperplane Radon transform on R^n. These formulas  differ from
the original ones by Johann Radon (1917)  and  do not need Abel's integral
equation or fractional powers of the minus-Laplacian.  Surprisingly, these
remarkable formulas have been  forgotten. We generalize Mader's formulas
to totally geodesic Radon transforms in any dimension on arbitrary
constant curvature space.

The talk will be accessible to a wide audience (no special knowledge in
integral geometry will be assumed).
