From the Back Cover

Approaches to the recovery of three-dimensional information on a biological object, which are often formulated or implemented initially in an intuitive way, are concisely described here based on physical models of the object and the image-formation process. Both three-dimensional electron microscopy and X-ray tomography can be captured in the same mathematical framework, leading to closely-related computational approaches, but the methodologies differ in detail and hence pose different challenges. The editors of this volume, Gabor T. Herman and Joachim Frank, are experts in the respective methodologies and present research at the forefront of biological imaging and structural biology.


Computational Methods for Three-Dimensional Microscopy Reconstruction will serve as a useful resource for scholars interested in the development of computational methods for structural biology and cell biology, particularly in the area of 3D imaging and modeling.

More About the Author

Gabor T. Herman received his Ph.D. degree from the University of London, England in 1968. From 1969 to 1981, he was with the Department of Computer Science, State University of New York at Buffalo, where he directed the Medical Image Processing Group. From 1981 to 2000, he was a Professor in the Medical Imaging Section of the Department of Radiology, University of Pennsylvania. Currently, he is a Distinguished Professor in the Department of Computer Science, Graduate Center, City University of New York, where he heads the Discrete Imaging and Graphics group.

His books include 3D Imaging in Medicine (CRC, 1991 and 2000), Geometry of Digital Spaces (Birkhauser, 1998), Discrete Tomography: Foundations, Algorithms and Applications (Birkhauser, 1999), Advances in Discrete Tomography and Its Applications (Birkhauser, 2007), and Fundamentals of Computerized Tomography: Image Reconstruction from Projections (Springer, 2009). During 1992-4 he was the Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Transactions on Medical Imaging.

Gabor T. Herman has honorary doctorates from Linkoping University (Sweden), Jozsef Attila University, Szeged (Hungary) and University of Haifa (Israel). He has been elected to be a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, the British Computer Society and the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering. He has been Principle Investigator on many funded research projects; a current one is Image Processing in Biological 3D Electron Microscopy (National Institutes of Health, 2001-2010).
