The tomographic map and density operator description of quantum states are reviewed. The connection between the tomogram and the probability distribution function is discussed. The relation of the Green function of the Moyal equation for the Wigner function to the Green function of the Schrodinger (von Neumann) equation in the tomographic representation is studied. An example of a quantum system with a quadratic Hamiltonian is considered.
