Applied Iterative Methods is a self-contained treatise suitable as both a reference and a graduate-level textbook in the area of iterative algorithms. It is the first book to combine subjects such as optimization, convex analysis, and approximation theory and organize them around a detailed and mathematically sound treatment of iterative algorithms. Such algorithms are used in solving problems in a diverse area of applications, most tably in medical imaging such as emission and transmission tomography and magnetic-resonance imaging, as well as in intensity-modulated radiation therapy. Other applications, which lie outside of medicine, are remote sensing and hyperspectral imaging. This book details a great number of different iterative algorithms that are universally applicable.
