Conference Topics

Positive definite kernels and radial basis functions provide the mathematical foundation for several methods of multivariate approximation. Shifts of a given kernel provide well-approximating trial spaces, for interpolation, approximation, or discretization of partial differential equations. One...

Multivariate polynomial and spline approximation is a classical field of approximation theory. Selected conference topics are interpolation by polyharmonic splines, splines on manifolds, spline curves and surfaces by geometric subdivision algorithms, generalized Chebyshev systems and Bernstein...

Subdivision schemes provide methods for generating surfaces or manifolds from discrete data by an iteration procedure which fills in more details in every step. Several recent developments of multivariate subdivision focus on adaptive and nonstationary schemes. Especially, the analysis of...

Very large volumes of data arise in scientific experiments of cell biology, particle physics, and medical imaging. Nonlinear approximation, dimension reduction und compressed sensing are methods for the development of sparse representations and are main topics of the conference. They are...
