5th International Conference on Computational Harmonic Analysis
in conjunction with the 29th annual Shanks Lecture

May 19-23, 2014
Department of Mathematics, Vanderbilt University

Computational Harmonic Analysis is 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 with a very broad spectrum of applications, such as wavelets, frames, sampling,  learning theory, and compressed sensing have found their mathematical home in Computational Harmonic Analysis. This forum for interdisciplinary research is expected to continue for the foreseeable future.  


Topics include, but are not limited to, the following areas:
  • Compressed sensing
  • Frame theory
  • High-dimensional data geometry
  • Learning theory
  • Mathematics of imaging
  • Matrix completion
  • Multifractals
  • Novel methods for sampling and sensing networks
  • Random matrix theory
  • Time-frequency analysis
  • Wavelet theory
  • X-let theory
