Applied Interdisciplinary Mathematics (AIM)

Date:  Friday, March 23, 2018
Location:  1084 East Hall (3:00 PM to 4:00 PM)

Title:  Math is in the eye of the beholder

Abstract:   Medical imaging benefits from advances in constructive approximation, orthogonal polynomials, Fourier and numerical analysis, statistics and other branches of mathematics. At the same time, the needs of medical diagnostic technology pose new mathematical challenges. This talk surveys a few problems, some of them related to approximation theory, that have appeared in my collaboration with specialists studying some pathologies of the human eye, in particular, of the cornea, such as:
- reconstruction of the shape of the cornea from the data collected by keratoscopes
- implementation of simple indices of corneal irregularity
- fast and reliable computation of the through-focus characteristics of a human eye.
