3 Introduction Introduction It is time now to state some precise uniqueness results. So far we have seen that: 1 In order to have Carleman estimates with opposite weights, one has to work with limiting Carleman weights. This is in order to comply with Hörmander s (necessary) criterium of solvability for non-selfadjoint operators. 2 On Riemannian manifolds, the existence of LCW is a limiting condition. It implies that manifolds have to be locally conformal to a product. 3 For reasons related to the global solvability of the transport equation, we will ask that the manifolds under scope be globally conformal to a product. 4 In fact, we need more conditions: for reasons related to the global solvability of the eikonal eqution, we ask the cutlocus of the manifold to be empty.

46 Attenuated X-ray transform Using Elliptic regularity Choose h = T λ ϕ for ϕ C0 Since T λ T λ is self-adjoint, we have (M int 0 ) so that M 0 f(x)t λ T λϕ(x) dv (x) = 0. M 0 (T λ T λf(x))ϕ(x) dv (x) = 0 for all test functions ϕ, so T λ T λf = 0. By ellipticity, since f was compactly supported in M0 int, it follows that f C0 (M int 0 ). One can now use the injectivity result for f smooth to conclude that f = 0. David Dos Santos Ferreira (LAGA) Inverse Problems 4 ICMAT 20 / 24

50 Using CGOs Uniqueness of unbounded potentials Noting that dv g = g 1/2 dx 1 dr dθ, we obtain that qe iλ(x1+ir) b(θ) dx 1 dr dθ = q(a 1 r 2 + a 2 r 1 + r 1 r 2 ) dv M The RHS converges to 0 as τ. Taking the limit as τ, we obtain that 0 M S n 2 q(x 1, r, θ)e iλ(x 1+ir) b(θ) dx 1 dr dθ = 0. This statement is true for all choices of ω M 0 \ M 0, for all real numbers λ, and for all functions b C (S n 2 ). Hence f λ (r, θ)e λr b(θ) dr dθ = 0 S n 2 where f λ L 1 (M 0 ) is the function given by 0 f λ (r, θ) = e iλx 1 q(x 1, r, θ) dx 1. David Dos Santos Ferreira (LAGA) Inverse Problems 4 ICMAT 23 / 24

53 End of the proof Uniqueness of unbounded potentials If λ is sufficiently small, it follows that f λ = 0. Since q(, r, θ) is a compactly supported function in L 1 (R) for a.e.
