February Fourier Talks 2012: Harmonic Analysis and Applications
Each year the two-day February Fourier Talks, organized by the Norbert Wiener Center in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Maryland, College Park, feature a diverse array of invited talks in the field of Harmonic Analysis and Applications. A single track of presentations from top academic, industry, and government researchers is scheduled, allowing ample time for interaction with other participants.
This year the FFT 2012 took place February 16 – 17, 2012, in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Maryland. Thursday evening featured a keynote address by Mario Livio, astrophysicist at the Space Telescope Science Institute and popular author of The Golden Ratio, Symmetry: From Human Perception to the Laws of Nature, and Is God a Mathematician? Thursday afternoon featured a talk in our Norbert Wiener Center Distinguished Lecturer Series by Gilbert Strang, of MIT, and Friday afternoon featured the Norbert Wiener Colloquium, by Peter Jones of Yale University.
