Fifteenth Internal SFB Meeting

From 27th to 30th of November the annual SFB Internal Meeting in Obergurgl in Tyrol, Austria, took place. SFB members and invited international participants were giving an insight into their latest research and used the chance to exchange ideas on further research.
Fortunately the weather conditions gave the participants the chance to explore the beautiful area surrounding the University Center in Obergurgl.

PhD defense: Fabian Parzer

We are happy to announce that Fabian Parzer, PhD student in Sub-project Tomography with Uncertainties, defended successfully his PhD thesis with the title “Low-Rank and Scale-Space Methods for Imaging with Uncertainty Quantification” on 25th of October, 2023.

Fabian was a PhD student under the supervision of Otmar Scherzer, principal investigator of Sub-project Tomography with Uncertainties, at the Faculty of Mathematics at the University of Vienna.

Colleagues from the SFB project and the Computational Science Center gathered in the evening to celebrate with Fabian his successful defense.

We congratulate!

SFB goes to the AIP23

In the first week of September the 11th Applied Inverse Problems Conference took place in Göttingen, Germany. Eight of our SFB project coordinators and members participated at this conference. All participants used the opportunity to present their recent and ongoing research in various minisymposia. In addition, four minisymposia at this conference were organized by Peter Elbau, Ekaterina Sherina, Michael Quellmalz and Leopold Veselka.

SFB at the RICAM – Special Semester

Currently, the autumn school as part of the Special Semester “Tomography Across the Scales” takes places at the RICAM in Linz. Peter Elbau, one of our project leaders, was invited to give an introductory lecture on the mathematics behind optical coherence tomography. The audience, including several members of SFB, warmly welcomed the intuitive and very well presented lecture on this highly complex topic.

ESI Workshop: Tomographic Reconstructions and their Startling Applications

The online Workshop at the Erwin Schrödinger International Institute for Mathematics and Physics (ESI) has just started. This is a two-weeks event with more than 50 international researchers participating. 

In the first week (March, 15th – 18th), we have mainly talks from applied mathematicians presenting results on tomographic reconstructions while the second week (March, 23th – 25th) covers the practical applications of such methods in astronomy and medical imaging. See the full program here.

Registration is free. You just have to contact Peter Elbau.

Front cover picture in “Inverse Problems”

A figure from the research paper “Preconditioning Inverse Problems for Hyperbolic Equations with Applications to Photoacoustic Tomography” by Alexander Beigl, Otmar Scherzer, Jarle Sogn (JKU, Linz) and Walter Zulehner (JKU, Linz) got chosen for the front cover of the International Journal “Inverse Problems”. The picture appearing at the Volume 36, Number 1 of the journal presents initial source reconstructions from Photoacoustic Tomography data.
