This course presents advanced numerical methods and algorithms for the restoration/analysis of planetary and astrophysical data. It is not intended as a comprehensive courses on the discipline but as the presentation of some key techniques. It is intended to convey a multi-disciplinary view of the image exploitation problem in astrophysics.
