Welcome to CIL’s documentation!#

The aim of this package is to enable rapid prototyping of optimisation-based reconstruction problems, i.e. defining and solving different optimization problems to enforce different properties on the reconstructed image, while being powerful enough to be employed on real scale problems.

Firstly, it provides a framework to handle acquisition and reconstruction data and metadata; it also provides a basic input/output package to read data from different sources, e.g. Nikon X-Radia, NeXus.

Secondly, it provides an object-oriented framework for defining mathematical operators and functions as well a collection of useful example operators and functions. Both smooth and non-smooth functions can be used.

Further, it provides a number of high-level generic implementations of optimisation algorithms to solve generically formulated optimisation problems constructed from operator and function objects.
