A multiscale transform in medical imaging

My name is Dominic Amann and I am working in the transfer group at the Johann Radon Institute for Computational and Applied Mathematics in Linz. My research topic is image processing for medical purposes such as optical coherence tomography. The goal of our work is to remove the noise that is inherent to many medical […]

Computational Finance and European Regulation

  Regulation (EU) No 1286/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 26 November 2014 on key information documents for packaged retail and insurance-based investment products (PRIIPs) requires that producers of PRIIPs give key information documents (KIDs) on these products to the investors. These KIDs have to describe the risk and the possible […]

Telescopes and Pyramids

My name is Victoria Hutterer and I am currently working as a member of the Austrian Adaptive Optics Group in Industrial Mathematics at the Johannes Kepler University in Linz. My research is mainly concerned with wavefront reconstruction from pyramid wavefront sensor data in astronomical Adaptive Optics. Adaptive Optics: Due to diffraction of light and turbulences […]

Otmar Scherzer, who is one of the organizers of next week’s Radon conference in Linz, speaks to the Austrian newspaper Der Standard and explains the Radon transform. Watch the movie (in German)! Otmar Scherzer explains the Radon transform  

Celebrating the Radon Transform

A century ago, the paper  “Über die Bestimmung von Funktionen durch ihre Integralwerte längs gewisser Mannigfaltigkeiten” has been published by Johann Radon in Berichte über die Verhandlungen der Königlich-Sächsischen Gesellschaft der Wissenschaften zu Leipzig. Mathematisch-Physische Klasse, Band 69, 1917, Seiten 262–277, which laid, by the Radon transform, the basis of computerized tomography. From Marc 27 to March 31, […]

MICADO – First Light Instruments for the European Extremely Large Telescope (E-ELT)

by Roland Wagner, RICAM Apart from METIS, our group in Linz is also involved in the development of MICADO, the Multi-AO Imaging Camera for Deep Observations of the E-ELT. The consortium behind MICADO is led by the Max Planck Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics  (MPE). What is MICADO? The name MICADO is well-known in a slightly […]

Mathematics can be tough

voestalpine Grobblech is one of the world’s leading producers of heavy plates that find their applications in extreme conditions. Tough, HIC- and wear resistant as well as roll bonded clad plates are the focus of their product mix. To control the thermomechanical conditions during the production in an appropriate way, is one of the key […]

METIS – First Light Instruments for the European Extremely Large Telescope (E-ELT)

by Andreas Obereder, RICAM and MathConsult After the sucessful research project Mathematical Algorithms for E-ELT Adaptive Optics , the Linz Adaptive Optics team is now involved the development of two first light instruments for the E-ELT  In this blog entry, we focus on our contribution to METIS, the Mid-infrared E-ELT Imager and Spectrograph.
