Feb. 28: Canadian Scholar to Discuss the Mathematics Behind Modern Algorithms

Keith F. Taylor, a professor of mathematics and statistics at Dalhousie University Halifax, Nova Scotia, will discuss the beautiful mathematics behind many of the modern algorithms used in signal and image processing on Wednesday, Feb. 28, at 7 p.m. in Academic West 108.  Taylor’s free, public talk, titled “The Wavelet Revolution,” will focus on abstract mathematical theorems discovered and proven in the recent decades that have had, and continue to have, profound impacts on these technologies.

He will also introduce some of the mathematical structures that form the foundation and then, starting around 1983, introduce some of the scientists and their contributions as the theory of wavelets developed.

Taylor’s lecture is sponsored by the mathematics department.
