Niven lecture: Surfing with wavelets
MATX 1100
Mon 25 May 2015, 1:15pm-2:15pm


Wavelets provide a mathematical tool that emerged in the 1980s from a synthesis of ideas in mathematics, physics, computer science and engineering. They are now used in a wide range of mathematical applications, and provide a mathematical way to "zoom in" on details, without losing track of the large picture. The talk will describe some of the essential features of the approach, and illustrate with examples.
