This is a brief introduction to the maximum entropy method (mem) of data analysis and image processing. First, the numerical inversion problem of interest is defined in general terms. Then, the mem philosophy is outlined, and several example applications are given, including Fourier analysis, deconvolution, Laplace inversion, and positron emission tomography.

Software can be downloaded for the analysis of kinetics data.
