Dr Madanayake gave a talk on “Fundamental Theory of Digital/Analog Array Radar Receivers using 3-D Multi-Beam Planar-Resonant Filter Banks” at this venue.
A forum on the theory and practice of image restoration and analysis. Potential topics include image registration, feature detection andestimation, image denoising, multimodal image fusion, and hardware/software architectures for image storage and processing.
Operational satellites are at risk from collisions with the more than 20,000 trackable debris objects that remain in orbit today, as well as hundreds of thousands of objects, including micrometeoroids, that are too small to be cataloged. Beyond the realm of Earth-oriented orbits, unique and immensely valuable science-gathering spacecraft can also be exposed to similar hypervelocity collisional risks, but from cometary and asteroidal micro-milliscale particles (dust). Papers are invited that address the space debris population and growth projections; debris and dust characteristics; impact modeling and materials testing; modeling and simulation and/or test results that can lead to quantification of the risks to spacecraft in various orbits and exploration missions; and mitigation strategies including debris removal or repositioning, spacecraft shielding, orbit selection, and spacecraft operations. Papers documenting past mission anomalies traced to space debris, and mitigation strategies employed today, are also of interest.
Introduction to the theory and applications of the calculus of variations. Theory of functionals; variational problems for an unknown function; Euler's equation; variable end-point problems; variational problems with subsidiary conditions; sufficient conditions for extrema: applications to optimum control and/or to other fields. A term project is required. Prerequisites: ESE 318 and 319 or ESE 317 or equivalent.
She holds a PhD in Philosophy from Columbia University (2004) and a PhD in Astrophysics from Paris VI University (1996). From 2012 to 2017, she was Professor of Philosophy of Science at Université Grenoble Alpes, head of the research laboratory PPL (Philosophie, Pratiques & Langages) and, in 2016-1017, vice-president in charge of interdisciplinary research. Her research work in general philosophy of science focuses on the unity/plurality of science debate, metaphysics of science (e.g. natural kinds), models and simulations, and science and society topics (e.g. autonomy and governance of science, public participation in science).
