Abstract: Two algorithms for the direct reconstruction of conductivities in a bounded domain in $\mathbb{R}^3$ from surface measurements of the solutions to the conductivity equation are presented. The algorithms are based on complex geometrical optics solutions and a nonlinear scattering transform. We test the algorithms on three numerically simulated examples, including an example with a complex coefficient. The spatial resolution and amplitude of the examples are well-reconstructed.
