Richard M. Karp Distinguished Lecture — Mathematical Imaging: From Geometric PDEs and Variational Modeling to Deep Learning for Images

Oct 19, 2021 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Images are a rich source of beautiful mathematical formalism and analysis. Associated mathematical problems arise in functional and non-smooth analysis, the theory and numerical analysis of nonlinear partial differential equations, inverse problems, harmonic, stochastic and statistical analysis, and optimization. 

In this talk we will learn about some of these mathematical problems, about variational models and PDEs for image analysis and inverse imaging problems as well as recent advances where such mathematical models are complemented and replaced by deep neural networks.The talk is furnished with applications to art restoration, forest conservation, and cancer research.
