Remarks on the general Funk transform and thermoacoustic tomography

Received  June 2009 Published  September 2010

We discuss properties of a generalized Minkowski-Funk transform defined for a family of hypersurfaces. We prove two-side estimates and show that the range conditions can be written in terms of the reciprocal Funk transform. Some applications to the spherical mean transform are considered.
