New Techniques for Fast Signals from Massive Noisy Data

Doug Pewitt

The math of our school days is not up to many important current problems. These problems are of a size and nature that classical methods and supercomputers cannot provide useful solutions. They include problems in a wide variety of fields, e.g., mineral exploration, medical diagnosis, astronomy, seismology, structural analysis, finance. Many working scientists seem to believe that such problems cannot be solved. Approaches to real time solution of massive noisy problems will be discussed—it is NOT a math tutorial. Emphasis will be on advances in numerical methods over the last five years.
