Prof. Hickernell will continue his talk of last time in our Meshfree
Method Seminar at 10:00 AM on Sep. 16th Tuesday. The location is still
at AM 222.
Furthermore, Prof. Igor will give us a talk on Sep. 23th. Next, Jun
Zhang will talk on Sep. 30th and his topic is "Laplacian Eigenmaps: a
theoretical manifold learning appraoch" and the abstract is as below.
In recent years manifold methods have become popular in machine
learning and have seen numerous applications in data analysis including
dimension reduction, visualization, clustering and classification. The
unifying assumption of these methods is that the data resides on or
near a low dimentional manifold. In the talk, I will introduce
Laplacian Eigenmaps, an approach based on the Laplace-Beltrami operator
on the underlying manifold, and explain its connections with the
prevailing manifold algorithms including Diffusion Maps, Isomap,
Hessian Eigenmaps and Locally Linear Embedding. Last, the applications
to image processing and statistical genetics for inferrence of
population structure will be presented.
Looking forward to meeting you on Tuesday.
