Abstract

A new tomographic image reconstruction method is proposed that uses a genetic algorithm (GA), a robust optimization algorithm based on the genetic principle of natural selection. For the purpose of description, a simple axisymmetric reference density field is reconstructed from its interferometric projection by the developed GA-based tomography. This preliminary investigation shows a promising potential of the GA-based tomography to overcome the problems associated with other existing tomographic methods, particularly for limited projections.
