ICERM Semester Program: High-Dimensional Approximation
Month: September 2014
Date: September 8--December 5
Name: ICERM Semester Program: High-Dimensional Approximation
Location: Brown University, Providence, Rhode Island.
This program addresses a broad spectrum of approximation problems, from the approximation of functions in norm, to numerical integration, to computing minima, with a focus on sharp error estimates. It will explore the rich connections to the theory of distributions of point-sets in both Euclidean settings and on manifolds and to the computational complexity of continuous problems. It will address the issues of design of algorithms and of numerical experiments. The program will attract researchers in approximation theory, compressed sensing, optimization theory, discrepancy theory, and information based complexity theory.
