  • B. Rubin (a1)


We obtain explicit inversion formulas for the Radon-like transform that assigns to a function on the unit sphere the integrals of that function over hemispheres lying in lower-dimensional central cross-sections. The results are applied to the determination of star bodies from the volumes of their central half-sections.
