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 […]

Instruments for the World’s largest Telescope

contributed by Roland Wagner, RICAM The practical needs for algorithms and software developed within the projects of the Austrian Adaptive Optics Team (AAO-Team) at the Industrial mathematics Institute at JKU Linz and at RICAM arise from the construction of the World’s largest telescope, the Extremely Large Telescope (ELT). The ELT will be equipped with several […]

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 […]

Coming to Linz…not such an Inverse Idea

My name is Kemal Raik and I am currently working on the FWF funded project on nonlinear heuristic regularisation for astronomical imaging at the Industrial Mathematics Institute in the Johannes Kepler University Linz. I am originally from London in the United Kingdom and did my bachelor studies in Aberdeen and then went on to attain […]

The Whole is more than the Sum of its Bricks

The AAO team of the Industrial Mathematics Institute of the JKU Linz has gained profound experience in the fields of adaptive optics during the ELT-project with ESO. Based on this expertise, the AAO team is engaged in the SFB-project “Tomography across the Scales”, especially in the sub-project “P5 – Tomography in Astrophysics”. The focus lies […]

SFB Tomography Across the Scales: Quantitative Optical Imaging from Single Molecules to Stars

Technologies which provide insight into the structure of biological/human material repeatedly have led to medical breakthroughs. In 1979, Allan MacLeod Cormack and Godfrey Houndsfield won the Nobel Prize in “Physiology and Medicine” for the first development of a CT-Scanner. The ability to inspect the internal three-dimensional structure of the human body by tomography has revolutionized […]

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 […]

When Crisp Theory is Disrupted by Messy Reality

In so many human endeavors, there is often a large gulf between an idea and the execution of that idea, between a philosophical ideal about how something works (or should work) and the implementation of a solution based upon this ideal meant to solve some problem. Every person in the world experiences this in some […]
