Emmanuel Candès awarded Pólya Prize

Jul 13 2010

Professor Candès with his colleague Terence Tao of the Mathematics Department at UCLA were awarded jointly "for their role in developing the theory of compressed sensing and matrix completion, which enables efficient reconstruction of sparse, high-dimensional data based on very few measurements. The algorithms and analysis are not only beautiful mathematics, worthy of study for their own sake, but they also lead to remarkable solutions of practical engineering problems."
