The spherical Radon-Dunkl transform Rκ, associated to weight functions invariant under a finite reflection group, is introduced, and some elementary properties are obtained in terms of h-harmonics. Several inversion formulas of Rκ are given with the aid of spherical Riesz-Dunkl potentials, the Dunkl operators, and some appropriate wavelet transforms.

Key words: spherical Radon-Dunkl transform; h-harmonics; inversion formula; wavelet.
