Welcome to the mathematics of multimedia signal processing! In the past few decades, important theories from mathematics have migrated into digital communication, image and signal processing, and multimedia visualisation and data analysis. Understanding these theories confers greater ability to solve practical problems.
Topics. This course will lead through a list of example problems in multimedia communication, develop the mathematical principles useful for their solution, and implement some solutions using theoretical results discussed in class.
Prerequisites. Math 449, or the permission of the instructor.
Time. Classes meet Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm, in Cupples I Hall room 115.
Text. The lectures will follow the book Mathematics for Multimedia by
M. V. Wickerhauser, ISBN 978-0-8176-4879-4 (2009).
A recommended reference book is Adapted Wavelet Analysis from Theory to Software by M. V. Wickerhauser, ISBN 1-56881-041-5 (1994).
Tests. There will be one midterm examination on Wednesday, March 6th, 2019, in class. The cumulative take-home final examination, which will emphasize material in the latter part of the course, is due by 12:00 noon on Friday, May 3rd, 2019, in my office, Cupples I, room 105a, or you may hand it to me at any earlier time.
Grading. One grade will be assigned for homework, one for the midterm examination, and one for the final examination. These three will contribute as follows to the course grade: HW 40%, Midterm 30%, Final 30%. Letter grades, computed from the course score, will be at least the following:
|Course score at least:||90%||80%||70%||60%||Letter grade at least:||A||B||C||D|
Office Hours. See the instructor in Cupples I, room 105a, on Mondays and Wednesdays after class from 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm, or by appointment.
