Discovering low-dimensional manifolds in high-dimensional data sets


Due to unforseen circumstances, this talk has been cancelled and will be rescheduled for a future date. We apologize for the inconvenience.




Speaker Abstract:

Diffusion methods help understand and denoise data sets; when there is additional structure (as is often the case), one can use (and get additional benefit from) a fiber bundle model.
