5th DISTINGUISHED LECTURE «Stelios Orphanoudakis»28 JUNE 2013, HERAKLION, CRETE, GREECE
On Friday 28th of June 2013, at the amphitheatre of FORTH "Georgios Lianis" in Heraklion (Crete), Professor George C. Papanicolaou of Stanford University will give the 5th lecture of the «Stelios Orphanoudakis» Distinguished Lectures series. This year, the Lecture is focused on the area of Mathematics and is entitled "Imaging in Complex Systems"
In the emerging interdisciplinary science of imaging, in all its forms, sensor imaging in complex media has a special place. This is because of the mathematical challenges it poses as well as because of the many applications that depend on its success, from high-resolution medical imaging to seismic imaging, satellite imaging, etc. I will give a brief overview of the mathematical issues that come up and then introduce correlation based, or interferometric methods that are well suited to deal with complex media. I will give examples from seismic imaging where correlation based methods have had a huge impact recently.
