Stanley Osher to speak in BioImage Geek Seminar Series at MPI-CBG: October 1, 2pm

Stanley J. Osher is a Professor of Mathematics and Director of Applied Mathematics at the University of California, Los Angeles. He is the co-inventor and a principle developer of a range of methods that have a huge impact on the field of imaging and image processing. His papers have been cited more than 70.000 times. To name just a few of his contributions, he developed (1) level set methods, (2) total variation based image processing techniques, and (3) fast algorithms for L1 optimization. The latter technique has lead to a recent revolution in tomographic image reconstruction. It will be the main topic of his talk in the BioImage Geek Seminar Series.
