Mecklenburg Workshop

Approximation Methods and Data Analysis

Hasenwinkel, September 05-09, 2016

(Monday, 2 pm - Friday, 1 pm)

Hotel Schloss Hasenwinkel

During the last 15-20 years the world is facing an overwhelming increase of data of various types. This includes data for document analysis, data coming from social networks, data for traffic control, image and video data, data from high throughput measurements in biology, physics, and other fields in science. Therefore, there is an increasing demand for efficient methods of analyzing the tremendous amount of data. The analysis of data can often be related to function approximation. Therefore, it seems natural to apply powerful methods from approximation theory in order to create new highly productive algorithms for data analysis. On the other hand challenges in the field of data analysis stimulate new directions of research in approximation theory.
The workshop is focused on approximation methods and data analysis. It is a continuation of a longstanding tradition of workshops on approximation theory and related fields held in Northern Germany since the 1990's. The upcoming workshop is dedicated to the 60th birthday of our colleague Hrushikesh N. Mhaskar.
