    Reverberation mapping probes the structure of the broad emission-line region (BLR) in active galactic nuclei (AGN). The kinematics of the BLR gas can be used to measure the mass of the central supermassive black hole. The main uncertainty affecting black hole mass determinations is the structure...

    In most applications of optical computed tomography (OpCT), limited-view problems are often encountered, which can be solved to a certain extent with typical OpCT reconstructive algorithms. The concept of entropy first emerged in information theory has been introduced into OpCT algorithms, such...

    A soft x-ray tomography code by pixel method has been prepared and tested with simulated data for the five array and seven array system of the SST-1 tokamak. A relatively small number of detectors have been used to obtain a partial view of the highly noncircular plasma in a poloidal plane...

As a basis for predicting agents' choices we emphasize the connection...
