EUROPEAN MATHEMATICAL SOCIETY SUMMER SCHOOL
WAVELET METHODS IN ANALYSIS AND SIMULATION
France, June 29 to July 10, 1998
In recent years, new ideas related to multiscale methods and
bases have appeared in many area of applied mathematics and engineering
sciences, such as
These ideas are practically implementable by fast and simple algorithms,
Signal and image processing
Numerical analysis and scientific computing
Turbulence analysis and multifractal analysis
Statistical estimation and modeling
while the understanding of their effectiveness in the above applications,
relies on a strong input of theoretical harmonic analysis and approximation
This summer school is intended to provide in two weeks with:
The two weeks will have distinct orientations: analysis problems
A basic theoretical understanding of the main mathematical tools and concepts
underlying wavelet-based methods. This will be provided by a basic course
of 10 hours, during the two weeks.
An more detailed insight on the specific applications and of the potential
of wavelet methods in comparison with other methods. A series of thematic
short courses (2 to 5 hours) will be devoted to this task.
A practical experience of the implementation of these methods, in the context
of the above aplications, by programming exercise sessions on the computer
equipment that will be provided at the site.
multiscale decomposition of the data in the first week, and numerical
simulation problems using the multiscale representation of the unknowns
the second week.
In the same location, a third week of summer school will take
July 13 to 18, specifically dealing with domain decomposition methods.
Informations on this activity, as well as registration forms, will
available on the site http://www.asci.fr by the end of February 98.
The school is especially addressed to PhD students and confirmed
researchers in applied mathematics, as well as researchers from industry
dealing with numerical problems. During these two weeks, they are expected
to interact fruitfully together with leading expert in concerned field.
Lectures will take place at laboratoire ASCI on the campus of
Paris XI, Orsay, 30mn from Paris by train. Accomodation at reasonable
is possible on the campus.
