Mathematics: The Enabling Tool for Industrial Innovation
by Prof Arvind Gupta
Abstract: In Canada we have witnessed an explosion of industrial interest in using advanced mathematical techniques for solving industrial problems. The Mathematics of Information Technology and Complex Systems (MITACS) network acts as a focal point for academic-industry interaction. There have been a number of notable successes within the network that have directly lead to industrial innovations. In this talk I will choose projects from three MITACS themes: A project on haplotyping from the Biomedical theme, on Facility Location Problems from the Information Processing theme, and on Seismic Imaging from the Environment theme. In each case I will explain the role of mathematics and its impact on the partner organization.
