Applied and Computational Harmonic Analysis in Action

Student-Run Applied & Math Seminar

Speaker: Naoki Saito, UC Davis
Location: 2112 MSB
Start time: Wed, Feb 25 2009, 12:10PM

I will overview my and my group's research projects all of which are related to Applied and Computational Harmonic Analysis (ACHA). ACHA is a discipline to study: a) efficient and meaningful representations of data objects (e.g., signals and images) and operators (e.g., matrices); b) fast computational algorithms to operate on them; and c) their wide-range of applications. In particular, I will discuss our recent effort on: 1) analysis of neuronal dendrite patterns using graph Laplacians; and 2) classification of underwater objects using sonar signals.
