Abstract

We study the problem of recovery both the attenuation $a$ and the source $f$ in the attenuated X-ray transform in the plane. We study the linearization as well. It turns out that there is a natural Hamiltonian flow that determines which singularities we can recover. If the perturbation $\delta a$ is supported in a compact set that is non-trapping for that flow, then the problem is well posed. Otherwise, it may not be, and least in the case of radial $a$, $f$, it is not. We present uniqueness and non-uniqueness results for both the linearized and the non-linear problem; as well as a H\"older stability estimate.
