Abstract
Harmonic analysis provides the mathematical backbone for modern signal and image processing. It also constitutes an important part of the foundation several scientific and engineering areas, including communication theory, control science, fluid dynamics, and electromagnetics, that underpin a much broader set of current applications. Although computer implementation of concepts from harmonic analysis is prevalent, relatively little attention is given to computational and numerical aspects of the discipline in its own literature. Further, many of the most capable young mathematicians working in this area have only modest exposure to the roles of such crucial computational considerations as finite data effects; e.g., How much error is introduced by truncating this infiniteseries representation of a function in terms of a frame, and where will it be manifested?
On the other hand, new tools and ideas have entered the mainstream of harmonic analysis in recent years that have not yet become established in areas of applied mathematics where numerical and computational issues are routinely treated as integral aspects of problem formulation and methodological development. Among these are tools for nonorthogonal and overcomplete representations in linear spaces and the exploitation of sparsity and related (e.g., low rank) assumptions in inverse problems of various types. This research cluster seeks to bridge this perceived gap by (i) fostering understanding and appreciation of the computational perspective among harmonic analysts and (ii) increasing awareness of emerging mathematical tools and techniques in applied harmonic analysis among computational mathematicians.
