Interesting Fact:

Medical imaging issues often take the form of inverse problems. A celebrated example is the CAT (computer-assisted tomography) scan, which collates a large number of low-dose X-ray images into a cross-sectional image that doesn't exist outside the computer. The relevant mathematical technique was developed years before it was needed in radiography.
The Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, Ca. This structure was designed by the architectural firm Gehry Partners through the extensive use of computer-aided design (CAD) tools.
