Introduction to magnetic resonance imaging for mathematicians. (English) Zbl 1117.78003
Summary: The basic concepts and models used in the study of nuclear magnetic resonance are introduced. A simple imaging experiment is described, as well as, the reduction of the problem of selective excitation to a classical problem in inverse scattering.
