Morera Theorems for Spheres through a Point in CN

  • Eric Liviu Grinberg
  • Eric Todd Quinto


We prove Morera theorems for the Radon transform integrating on spheres through a point in ℂn. The proofs use spherical functions and integral equations techniques as well as a support theorem for a generalized Radon transform on hyperplanes.
