Professor Gilbert Strang of MIT
"Singular Values of Matrices and Data Science"
Wednesday, February 1, 2017
3:40–5 p.m.
Location: Surge Building 284
Parking Information
Category: Colloquium
Description:
The "fundamental theorem of linear algebra" tells us about orthogonal bases for the row space and column space of any matrix. More than that, it identifies the most important part of the matrix  which is a central goal for a matrix of data. This talk will be partly about the underlying theory  the Singular Value Decomposition  and partly about some of its applications to data science and signal and image compression.
