OVERVIEW
This one-day workshop, consisting of one mini-course and a number of feature lecture series, focuses on the recent development of group transforms based on the orbit functions of compact Lie groups. It is geared towards young faculties, postdoctoral fellows, graduate students, and practitioners in non academic research or industries. We will introduce three new families of class functions defined on the maximal torus of each compact simply connected Lie group G. Each class of these function offers a variety of group transforms similar to Fourier and cosine transforms. The orthogonality property of these functions makes the transforms easy to compute. Theoretical, computational and application aspects of the discrete forms of these transforms will be primarily discussed in this workshop due to their great potential in digital image processing. Our previous and current work has already demonstrated the powerfulness of using these transforms in image interpolation, compression, segmentation, edge detection and texture identification.
