GAUSS (Graduate and Undergraduate Students Seminar)

Upcoming Seminars for Fall Semester

Unless otherwise noted, the Fall Semester GAUSS talks will be on Fridays at 4:00PM in S2 308.

September 19, 2014; 4:00PM in S2 308: Tamas Forgacs (Fresno State)

Title: Apolar derivatives and a generalization of the Gauss-Lucas theorem

Abstract: This talk will investigate a generalization of the real derivative, and its connection to the location of the zeros of a polynomial.


September 26, 2014; 4:00PM in S2 308: Aramayis Orkusyan (Fresno State student)

Title: Optimizing Medical Image Reconstruction

Abstract: The medical field relies heavily on CT imaging to create visual representations of a patients internal anatomy through noninvasive means. These images are produced from X-ray data collected by the CT scanner; however, the observed data is not an exact representation of the patient's anatomy and requires computational methods to reconstruct the original image. In this talk, we will discuss the traditional method for image reconstruction and their disadvantages, and investigate more novel approaches for image reconstruction.
