Math-applied APPLIED MATH PROGRAM: Seminar & Refreshments ~ Thursday, December 7, 2017

*Non-standard Day, location and time*


Speaker: Guy Gilboa, Faculty of electrical engineering, Technion

Date: Thursday, December 7, 2017

Time: 4:00 p.m. Refreshments (AKW, 1st Floor Break Area)
4:15p.m. Seminar (AKW 400)

Title: Processing images using nonlinear transforms

Abstract: Recent studies of convex functionals and their related nonlinear eigenvalue problems show surprising analogies to harmonic analysis based on classical transforms (e.g. Fourier). In this talk the total-variation transform will be introduced along with some theoretical results. Applications related to image decomposition, texture processing and face fusion will be shown. Extensions to graphs and a new interpretation of gradient descent will also be discussed.

Links to “Oncology at the Limits” and TRACERx Consortium

Here is a link to the “Oncology at the Limits” Conference which is co-organised between UCL and Yale, …. It will be from
19th to 21st March at the Royal College of Physicians in London.



The Keynote this year was … about the Lung TRACERx consortium. It is a project which
performs multi-site sampling of tumours to gain an insight into subclonal populations, and also follows up on the presence, expansion or response to therapy of these subclones via circulating-tumour-DNA. …



Webinar Invitation: General Data Science Overview

Webinar Invitation
General Data Science Overview
Date: November 1st
Time: 11:00 a.m. EDT


How can we effectively and efficiently teach statistical thinking and computation to students with little to no background in either? How can we equip them with the skills and tools for reasoning with various types of data and leave them wanting to learn more?

In this talk we describe an introductory data science course that is our (working) answer to these questions. ….
