Mathematics provides new knowledge about the interior of objects

A new dissertation for the Department of Mathematical Sciences shows how mathematical methods and computer calculations can be used to obtain the maximum information from a single electromagnetic pulse, which can be important in medical treatment, for example.

“In many cases, such as in medicine, where patients must not be exposed to excessive radiation, it is desirable to keep the amount of penetrating waves as small as possible,” says John Bondestam Malmberg.
