The discrete tomography of mathematical quasicrystals with icosahedral symmetry is investigated, placing emphasis on reconstruction and uniqueness problems. The work is motivated by the requirement in materials science for the unique reconstruction of the structures of icosahedral quasicrystals from a small number of images produced by quantitative high-resolution transmission electron microscopy.
