Inverse problems, Medical imaging, Numerical methods, Wavelets: Dr. Bernard Mair has published 27 papers. A particular inverse problem he has worked on is the modeling of heat flow of rocket plumes. His work in medical imaging includes the development of new methods for PET image formation and deblurring the discrete gaussian.
