#9 Meeting: EMS Summer School on Wavelets (Paris)


Orsay, France, June 29 to July 10, 1998

In recent years, new ideas related to multiscale methods and wavelet
bases have appeared in many area of applied mathematics and engineering
sciences, such as
- Signal and image processing
- Numerical analysis and scientific computing
- Turbulence analysis and multifractal analysis
- Statistical estimation and modeling
These ideas are practically implementable by fast and simple algorithms,
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:
- 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.

The two weeks will have distinct orientations: analysis problems using
multiscale decomposition of the data in the first week, and numerical
simulation problems using the multiscale representation of the unknowns in
the second week.

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 University
Paris XI, Orsay, 30mn from Paris by train. Accomodation at reasonable price
is possible on the campus.

Detailed information about registration and accomodation can be found on
the web site of the European
Mathematical Society

In the same location, a third week of summer school will take place from
July 13 to 18, specifically dealing with domain decomposition methods.
Informations on this activity, as well as registration forms, will be
available on the site by the end of February 98.
