Wavelets: a mathematical synthesis of ideas from many fields
featuring Dr. Ingrid Daubechies
Tuesday, September 19 at 8:00 pm
Wavelets and the wavelet transform were formulated in the 1980s; they brought together in one concept ideas from many fields, including quantum mechanics, harmonic analysis of singular operators, geophysics, computer vision, and electrical engineering. The synthesis of these ideas into one family of tools led to applications in many directions, ranging from astrophysics to medical imaging and sports transmissions. Explore the fascinating topic of wavelets with the woman behind the concept, Dr. Ingrid Daubechies, MoMath’s 2023-2034 Distinguished Visiting Professor for the Public Dissemination of Mathematics.
