Flight Algorithms for Disaggregated Space Architectures
ID: 278231
Start date: 2011-10-01, End date: 2016-09-30
Standard spacecraft designs comprise modules assembled in a single monolithic structure. When unexpected situations occur, the spacecraft are unable to adequately respond, and significant functional and financial losses are unavoidable. For instance, if the payload of a space...

Information-optimal machine learning
ID: 336078
Start date: 2013-10-01, End date: 2018-09-30
The statistical and computational theory of learning is one of the prime achievements of computer science and engineering. This is evident both in terms of mathematical elegance of capturing intuitive notions rigorously as well as in terms of practical applicability: machine ...

Strong Probabilistically Checkable Proofs
ID: 239985
Start date: 2009-09-01, End date: 2016-06-30
Probabilistically Checkable Proofs (PCPs) encapsulate the striking idea that verification of proofs becomes nearly trivial if one is willing to use randomness. The PCP theorem, proven in the early 90's, is a cornerstone of modern computational complexity theory. It compl...

Transformation optics: cloaking, perfect imaging and horizons
ID: 320034
Start date: 2013-03-01, End date: 2018-02-28
Transformation optics grew out of ideas for invisibility cloaking devices and exploits connections between electromagnetism in media and in geometries. Invisibility has turned from fiction into science since 2006, but is far from being practical yet. Advances in the theory of...

Non-Rigid Shape Reconstruction and Deformation Analysis
ID: 267414
Start date: 2011-01-01, End date: 2016-12-31
Deformable and non-rigid objects, both natural and artificial, surround us at all scales from nano to macro, and play an important role in many applications ranging from medical image analysis to robotics and gaming. Such applications require the ability to acquire, reconstru...

Robust Codes from Higher Dimesional Expanders
ID: 336283
Start date: 2014-02-01, End date: 2020-01-31
Error correcting codes play a fundamental role in computer science. Good codes are codes with rate and distance that are asymptotically optimal. Some of the most successful good codes are constructed using expander graphs. In recent years a new notion of {\em robust} error co...

Understanding Random Systems via Algebraic Topology
ID: 320422
Start date: 2013-03-01, End date: 2018-09-30
Over the past decade there has been a significant expansion of activity in applying the techniques and theory of algebraic topology to real world problems. The expression `applied algebraic topology' is no longer an oxymoron! This expansion has generated new mathematical theo...

Symplectic topology and its interactions: from dynamics to quantization
ID: 338809
Start date: 2013-10-01, End date: 2019-09-30
"The proposed research belongs to symplectic topology, a rapidly developing field of mathematics which originally appeared as a geometric tool for problems of classical mechanics. Since the 1980ies, new powerful methods such as theory of pseudo-holomorphic curves, Morse-Floer...

Ergodic Group Theory
[PROJECT] UB12 - Ergodic Group Theory
ID: 306706
Start date: 2012-09-01, End date: 2018-08-31
"The aim of the proposed research is gaining a better understanding of locally compact groups and their lattices. Our tools are mainly ergodic theoretical. We propose a variety of novel ideas that open new horizons for research. The first meta idea is the adoption of tools fr...

Extremely Thin Absorbers for Solar Energy Conversion and Storage
ID: 617516
Start date: 2014-09-01, End date: 2019-08-31
ETASECS aims at making a breakthrough in the development of photoelectrochemical (PEC) cells for solar-powered water splitting that can be readily integrated with PV cells to provide storage capacity in the form of hydrogen. It builds upon our recent invention for resonant li...
