Abstract

This paper describes the operating principle of a simple system that performs automatically the Abel inversion of side-on measurements of emission from cylindrical, optically thin radiators. Unlike analog computers that essentially determine numerical coefficients in a series approximation, the present system automatically provides an output corresponding directly to the integral in a particular form of the solution for the emission coefficient.
