5th International Conference
on Computational Harmonic Analysis, May 19-23

The 5th International Conference on Computational Harmonic Analysis will be held at Vanderbilt May 19-23, 2014, in conjunction with the 29th annual Shanks Lecture.

The purpose of the conference is to foster research and collaboration in the field of computational harmonic analysis, an area of mathematical analysis that has had a strong impact on many areas of science and engineering as well as in pure mathematics. New developments in this field have a wide range of applications – in wavelets, frames, sampling, learning theory, and compressed sensing.

Topics that will be covered include, but are not limited to, compressed sensing, frame theory, high-dimensional data geometry, learning theory, the mathematics of imaging, matrix completion, multifractals, novel methods for sampling and sensing networks, random matrix theory, time-frequency analysis, wavelet theory, and x-let theory.

The conference is held in conjunction with the 29th Annual Shanks Lecture. This year’s featured Shanks Lecturer is Fields Medalist Jean Bourgain of the Institute for Advanced Study.

The prestigious Shanks Lecture Series is organized annually by the Department of Mathematics of Vanderbilt University, honoring Baylis and Olivia Shanks. The late Professor Baylis Shanks was chairman of the Department from 1955 through 1969. A list of previous Shanks Conferences and Lecturers can be found here.
