[...] he has found a surprising connection between his early work on the model sets used to construct quasicrystals — the ‘Meyer Sets’ — and ‘compressed sensing’, a technique used for acquiring and reconstructing a signal utilizing the prior knowledge that it is sparse or compressible.Which should please Igor Carron, of course. Every emys knows that every four years, Fields medals are attributed to talented mathematicians. The country of course honors Ngô Bao Châu (fundamental Lemma in the theory of automorphic forms through the introduction of new algebro-geometric methods) and Cédric Villani (proofs of nonlinear Landau damping and convergence to equilibrium for the Boltzmann equation, yet being director of IHP), along with Elon Lindenstrauss (results on measure rigidity in ergodic theory, and their applications to number theory) and Stanislas Smirnov (proof of conformal invariance of percolation and the planar Ising model in statistical physics). The Nevanlinna Prize and the Chern Prize go to Daniel Spielman and Louis Nirenberg respectively.
Let us end this with a typical mathanagram:
- What’s an anagram of Banach-Tarski?
- Banach-Tarski Banach-Tarski.
