This 2-day workshop (PLEASE NOTE: THIS WORKSHOP HAS BEEN POSTPONED) covers basic concepts and common analytical approaches for time-to-event data, known variously as survival analysis (in biological and medical sciences), event history…

Fourier transform and its applications in data analysis

February 28 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Location: Rackham Building, Earl Lewis Room, 3rd Floor East, 915 E. Washington St.
Ann Arbor, MI 48109 United States

Spectral decomposition of time series (1-D) and image (2-D) data is a commonly used technique across various disciplines that use sensors for data collection. Fourier analysis is the foundation of…
