DESCRIPTION:The first industrial revolution was about harnessi
ng physics\, the second industrial revolution\, un
folding in front of our eyes\, is about informatio
n: its collection\, transmission\, compression\, c
oding\, encryption and decryption and\, in particu
lar\, its understanding. This has profound implica
tions for tomorrow's mathematics\, which are alrea
dy felt today. This talk will examine emerging the
mes in mathematical sciences which address the cha
llenge of information\, in particular mathematical
image processing (how to use differential equatio
ns and variational problems to analyse\, interpret
\, manipulate and enhance digital images) and comp
ressed sensing (how to be smart by collecting less
data yet analysing them better\, taking advantage
of their innate sparsity).\n\nDr Hansen\, recentl
y appointed a University Lectureship in the Mathem
atics of Information. works in the area of computa
tional harmonic analysis with emphasis on sampling
theory and compressed sensing. He is a Royal Soci
ety University Research Fellow and previously held
a von Karman Instructorship at Caltech and a Rese
arch Fellowship at Homerton. His non-mathematical
collaborators include the University of Cambridge
Magnetic Resonance Research Centre. Professor Iser
les' research interests include aspects of the num
erical solution of differential equations and othe
r areas of computational mathematics. He is co-Dir
ector of the Cambridge Centre for Analysis (a join
t initiative of the two Cambridge Mathematics Depa
rtments) and was a winner of the 2012 David Cright
on Medal awarded jointly by the London Mathematica
l Society and the Institute for Mathematics and it
s Applications.
