An inverse source problem in optical molecular imaging

Plamen Stefanov and Gunther Uhlmann

Vol. 1 (2008), No. 1, 115–126

We study the direct and an inverse source problem for the radiative transfer equation arising in optical molecular imaging. We show that for generic absorption and scattering coefficients, the direct problem is well-posed and the inverse one is uniquely solvable, with a stability estimate.
