SUMMARY:Peter Sagirow Distinguished Lecture 2016 with Prof. Anders Lindquist
DESCRIPTION: \n\n\n\n\nSpeaker:\n\n\n\nProf. Dr. Anders Lindquist\n\nZhiyuan Chair Professor\nShanghai Jiao Tong University\nChina\nDirector, Center for Industrial and Applied Mathematics\nRoyal Institute of Technology (KTH)\nStockholm, Schweden\n\n\n\n\nTime and Place:\n\nWednesday, November 2, 2016, 2 p.m. \nLecture Room V9.01, Pfaffenwaldring 9, University of Stuttgart\n\n\n\n\nAbstract:\n\n\nEvery 30 milliseconds, your mobile telephone computes a solution to the\nCarathéodory extension problem — a classical mathematical problem that dates back to the beginning\nof last century. In 1918, Schur presented a complete parameterization of all solutions to this\nproblem, and the one used in speech processing for a “shaping filter” is called the maximumentropy\nsolution. In theory, one could improve the quality of speech by choosing another solution, but a\nrequirement on the complexity of the shaping filter renders the Schur parameterization useless and\ncompletely alters the underlying mathematical problem.\nWe present a new approach to speech processing which provides a paradigm that can\nalso be applied to problems in system identification, robust control, image processing, etc. It\nallows for smooth tuning to specifications in a class of solutions with bounded complexity. The\nmethodology employed is a combination of nonlinear analysis, geometry and optimization, but the\ntalk will be given on a descriptive and rather nontechnical level.\n\nBiographie:\n\n\nAnders Lindquist is presently a distinguished Chair Professor at Shanghai Jiao Tong University\nin China and the Director of the Center for Industrial and Applied Mathematics at the Royal\nInstitute of Technology (KTH), Stockholm, Sweden, after having had a full academic career in the\nUnited States. He was also the Head of the Mathematics Department at the KTH for ten years and a\nleading figure in the establishment of the field of control in Sweden. Because of his many seminal\ncontributions to control, he received numerous highest-ranking awards—amongst others the honorary\ndoctor’s degree at the Technion, Israel, and the 2009 Reid Prize in Mathematics from SIAM.\nLindquist is a Member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences, a Foreign Member of\nthe Chinese Academy of Sciences, a Foreign Member of the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences, an\nHonorary Member the Hungarian Operations Research Society, a Life Fellow of IEEE, a Fellow of SIAM,\nand a Fellow of IFAC. \n\n\n\n
