We show that on a two-dimensional compact nontrapping manifold with strictly convex boundary, a piecewise constant function is determined by its integrals over geodesics. In higher dimensions, we obtain a similar result if the manifold satisfies a foliation condition. These theorems are based on iterating a local uniqueness result. Our proofs are elementary.

Ilmavirta, Joonas; Railo, Jesse (Suomalainen tiedeakatemia, 2020)We show injectivity of the geodesic X-ray transform on piecewise constant functions when the transform is weighted by a continuous matrix weight. The manifold is assumed to be compact and nontrapping of any dimension, and ...
Ilmavirta, Joonas; Mönkkönen, Keijo (Birkhäuser, 2022)We prove that if P(D) is some constant coefficient partial differential operator and f is a scalar field such that P(D)f vanishes in a given open set, then the integrals of f over all lines intersecting that open set ...
Guillarmou, Colin; Salo, Mikko; Tzou, Leo (Springer, 2019)In this note we show that on any compact subdomain of a K¨ahler manifold that admits sufficiently many global holomorphic functions, the products of harmonic functions form a complete set. This gives a positive answer to ...

Ilmavirta, Joonas; Mönkkönen, Keijo (Society for Industrial & Applied Mathematics (SIAM), 2021)If the integrals of a one-form over all lines meeting a small open set vanish and the form is closed in this set, then the one-form is exact in the whole Euclidean space. We obtain a unique continuation result for the ...
