Bernard Deconinck (President), Malgorzata Peszynska (Vice President), Leming Qu (Treasurer) and myself (Secretary) have started a new SIAM section for the Pacific Northwest region (SIAMPNWS)! The aim of the section is to bring together communities in the Pacific Northwest that are active in industrial and applied mathematics. If you are in the Pacific Northwest and would like to be involved, please drop us a line.
My postdoc Il Yong Chun and I recently completed a new paper titled Compressed sensing and parallel acquisition. In it we present a theoretical framework for the use of compressed sensing in multi-sensor systems. These systems are found numerous applications, ranging from parallel MRI, to multi-view imaging and generalized sampling theory. Our work provides a first mathematical analysis of the gains offered by parallel acquisition and compressed sensing, and presents new insight into questions of optimal sensor design.
