Welcome to the second PDC-SeRC seminar! PDC and SeRC are hosting a new series of seminars about e-Science where SeRC members and other interested researchers and students can meet to exchange ideas and listen to inspiring e-Science presentations by outstanding researchers.
The second seminar in this series, “Feature-based Visualization ” by Prof. Tino Weinkauf, will be held on the 23th of October from 12:00-13:00 in the SeRC meeting room at PDC. A light lunch will be provided.
Speaker: Tino Weinkauf
Location: SeRC room, PDC, 5th floor of Teknikringen 14, KTH
Time: 12:00-13:00 October 23
Title: Feature-based Visualization
Analyzing large and high-dimensional data sets is a challenging task and ideally carried out using sophisticated tools which allow to concentrate on the most relevant information and to automate the analysis. These goals can be achieved using feature-based methods, which foster target-oriented studies of the most important aspects of a data set.
This talk gives an overview of algorithms and mathematical models to analyze the features of data sets from a variety of different domains such as fluid dynamics, cell biology, and climatology. The basis of our work is discrete Morse theory, as it allows robust, parameter-free, and topologically consistent computations. Our goal is to develop solutions to the open problems of discrete Morse theory in order to make discrete approaches applicable for a large number of practical applications.
