1995 Stelson Lecture - Stanley Osher

Primary tabs

Stanley Osher is a professor at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), Director of Special Projects in the Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics (IPAM) and member of the California NanoSystems Institute (CNSI) at UCLA. He has made many contributions in shock capturing, level set methods, and PDE-based methods in computer vision and image processing.





Subscale capturing in numerical analysis

In these two talks we shall describe numerical methods which were devised for the purpose of computing small scale behavior without either fully resolving the whole solution or explicitly tracking certain singular parts of it. Techniques developed for this purpose include shock capturing, front capturing, and multiscale analysis. Areas in which these methods have recently proven useful include image processing, computer vision, and differential geometry, as well as more traditional fields of physics and engineering.
