Ticketing: Pre-booking essential
Mark Huckvale, Speech, Hearing and Phonetic Sciences, UCL
Joseph Fourier's Transform is a piece of mathematics which has had enormous influence on the modern world, but which remains largely unknown. It has application anywhere you want to separate signals from noise, or compress streams of data, or model changes in time series. It's in your mobile phone, your digital camera and your web browser.
In this talk Mark Husckvale will trace its fascinating history from a controversial hypothesis by a tailor's son in 19th century France, through one of the great discoveries in mathematics to modern applications.
