We study the inversion of weighted Radon transforms in two dimensions, R-rho f (L) = f(L) f((.)) rho (L, (.)) ds, where the weight function rho (L, x), L a line and x is an element of L, has a special form. It was an important breakthrough when R. G. Novikov recently gave an explicit formula for the inverse of R-rho When rho has the form (1.2); in this case R-rho is called the attenuated Radon transform. Here. we prove similar results,for a somewhat larger class of rho using completely different and quite elementary methods.
