MATHEMATICAL MODELING AND SCIENTIFIC COMPUTING SEMINAR by Roger B. SIDJE

June 5, 2019

MATHEMATICAL MODELING WORKSHOP AND SCIENTIFIC COMPUTING
CETIC, NATIONAL ADVANCED SCHOOL OF ENGINEERING, UNIVERSITY OF YAOUNDE I

By

Prof  Roger B. SIDJE

Professor Roger SIDJE will give a seminar at the CETIC this Wednesday, June 5, 2019 in the room of masters from 14 hours 30 minutes precise, on the theme “Understanding tensors and tensor decompositions” (see summary below).
Roger SIDJE is Professor of Mathematics at the University of Alabama in the United States, specializing in the field of computational mathematics. His work has received special attention from the scientific community. We can mention among others its EXPOKIT package with 750 GoogleScholar quotes and 513 ResearchGate quote. He is also known as an expert in MathML and Web technologies for teaching mathematics.

Title: Understanding Tensor and Tensor Decompositions

Abstract: Tensors are multidimensional arrays that can play a key role in the representation of big data. Decompositions of higher-order tensors have applications in biochemistry, signal processing, data mining, neuroscience, and elsewhere. The talk will present commonly used tensor operations and different types of tensor decomposition. Specifically, it will illustrate the CANDECOMP/PARAFAC (CP) decomposition and the Tucker decomposition, which are examples of decompositions that have been employed to optimize the storage of large high-order tensors that arise naturally in different scientific fields. Computation with the decomposed tensors, however, is still an actively growing field of research that promises to offer new insights into solving classic problems. We will consider the chemical master equation as an illustrative example.

 

PS: If Wednesday is a holiday, the conference will take place on Tuesday at the same place and time.
