Abstract. In many areas of science and engineering it is of interest to find the shape of an
object or region from indirect measurements which can actually be distilled into moments of the
underlying shapes we seek to reconstruct. In this paper, we describe a theoretical framework for the
reconstruction of a class of planar semi-analytic domains from their moments. A part of this class,
known as quadrature domains, can approximate, arbitrarily closely, any bounded domain in the
complex plane, and is therefore of great practical importance. We provide an exact reconstruction
algorithm of quadrature domains. Some numerical demonstrations of the proposed algorithms will
be presented. In addition, relations of the present theory to computer-assisted tomography and a
geophysical inverse problem will be briefly discussed.
1. Introduction
The theoretical subject of this paper is the truncated L problem of moments in two variables
