I will keep this post as sticky so that it is always the first post and will update the above with the presentation date once they are decided. As I mentioned in class typically on a Friday that you will present next Wednesday.
On Friday, we defined the notion of norm over a real vectors and studied some of their properties.
The material was from Lecture 2 of Anna Gilbert’s notes.
In today’s lecture, we reviewed some basics of complex matrices and in particular, orthogonal matrices. We then looked at the trivial example of the identity matrix and the non-trivial example of the DFT matrix.
The slides have been uploaded.
In today’s lecture, we went through an overview of what we will be covering in the course: sparse solutions to equations of the form , where we have different constraints in the three parameters depending on the application. (We looked at three: image compression, data stream algorithms and compressed sensing.)
The slides for today’s lecture have been uploaded. (Note that once whiteboards are installed in 113A, which should happen sometime next week, I’ll be using the whiteboards and hence there won’t be any slides.)
Today’s material was based in part from these lecture notes from Anna Gilbert’s course.
This blog will be the one-stop-shop for everything related to the seminar this spring. You’re strongly encouraged to sign-up for email notification for new posts (click the button on the right panel). It’s your responsibility to make sure you follow all the announcements on the blog. If you already have a wordpress account, you can follow this blog.
Here are the main logistics:
- We will meet Wednesdays and Fridays from 9-10am in Davis 113A. The first meeting will be next Wednesday, Jan 18.
- For the course material, we will follow Anna Gilbert‘s lectures notes from a related course. Anna is one of the world experts on sparse approximation and compressed sensing and she’ll be blogging about the material as well as some excellent lectures notes on her blog. (Again a link is there on the right panel.)
- Depending on the number of registered students, I will present lectures in about half the meeting and each one of you will present for an hour slot during our normal meeting slot. By default all the material will be from Anna Gilbert’s lecture notes. You can present a research paper that is closely related to the seminar material– however, you will have to get prior approval from me or Hung.
This should be a fun seminar and I’m looking forward to interacting with you over this semester.
If you have any questions/comments/concerns, please feel free to use the comment section of this post.
We will meet on Mondays and Wednesdays, 9-10am, in Bell 224. See you all tomorrow.
