"The goal of this investigation is to develop an efficient method for reconstruction of dielectric and conductive property distribution of an arbitrary object based on scattered field measured at several locations. Starting from an integral equation and using the Method-of-Moments, a spatial forward iterative algorithm is used for reconstruction and in this algorithm regularization and optimization methods are used for stability and convergence. The algorithm used for th iterative reconstruction process is based on a forward formulation which is used for calculating the scattered field at any arbitrary point when a dielectric object (for which the permittivity distribution is to be determined) of arbitrary shape is illuminated by an incident plane electric field from an arbitrary direction. This work focuses on issues including resolution, noise, geometrical configuration of investigation and measurement domains, polarization, etc., as they influence the reconstruction process"--Abstract, leaf iii.
