Some Inverse Problem for the Polarized-Radiation Transfer Equation
An inverse problem for the steady vector transfer equation for polarized radiation is studied. For this problem, an attenuation factor is found from a given solution of the equation at a medium boundary. An approach is propounded to solve the inverse problem by using special external radiative sources. A formula is proposed which relates the Radon transform of an attenuation factor to a solution of the equation at the medium boundary. Numerical experiments show that the proposed reconstruction algorithm for the polarized-radiation transfer equation has an advantage over the similar method for the scalar case.
