Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


We implemented and tested a domain decomposition method that provides a suitable framework for parallelization of optical tomographic imaging codes based on the frequency-domain equation of radiative transfer. This leads to substantial reduction in memory requirements and increased computation speed.
