Many problems from mathematics and engineering can be described in terms of reconstruction from geometric information. Reconstruction is the algorithmic problem of combining the results of one or more measurements of some aspect of a physical or mathematical object to obtain certain desired information about the object. Geometric reconstruction problems arise in a number of applications, such as robotics and computer-aided tomography, and also are of theoretical interest.
