# Yves Meyer gives a talk at PGS

Lectures

Location: PGS, Lilleakerveien 4C, Oslo

24 May 2017 at 07:45 - 24 May 2017 at 09:30

#### The role of time-frequency wavelets in the detection of gravitational waves and in the Compression of Seismic Data

Abel Laureate Yves Meyer will in his talk at Petroleum Geo-Services (PGS) explain how his wavelet theory is relevant in connection with seismic data.

There will also be a lecture by Sverre Brandsberg Dahl, PGS Chief Geophysicist, titled "Applied mathematics and supercomputers in seismic imaging"

Yves Meyer receives the Abel Prize for his pivotal role in the development of the mathematical theory of wavelets. This is an exciting area where the advanced mathematics of signal processing is directly applicable to the world of seismic imaging.

The event is open to everybody, but registration is necesarry.
