This page provides a list of past and current instructors for the Norbert Wiener Center along with contact information.

John J. Benedetto - Professor Benedetto is the Director of the Norbert Wiener Center and MAIT Program, and a Distinguished Scholar-Teacher of the University of Maryland. He is a professor in the Mathematics Department and in the Applied Mathematics and Scientific Computation Program. He is also the current and founding editor of the Applied and Numerical Harmonic Analysis book series, and founding editor-in-chief of the Journal of Fourier Analysis and Applications.

General Harmonic Analysis Lecture and Overview

Ramani Duraiswami - Prof. Duraiswami is a member of the faculty of the department of computer science and of the University of Maryland Institute of Advanced Computer Studies (UMIACS). He directs research at the Perceptual Interfaces and Reality Laboratory (PIRL), and have broad research interests in scientific computing, computer audition, computer vision and machine learning. His recent book (with Dr. Gumerov), Fast Multipole Methods for the Helmholtz Equation in Three Dimensions (The Elsevier Electromagnetism Series) has just been published by Elsevier.

MAIT 627 - Fast Multipole Methods

Glenn R. Easley - Dr. Easley received the B.S. degree (with honors) and the M.A. degree in mathematics from the University of Maryland, College Park, in 1993 and 1996, respectively, and the Ph.D. degree in computational science and informatics from George Mason University in 2000. Since 2000, he has been working for System Planning Corporation in the areas of signal and image processing. His research interests include computational harmonic analysis, wavelet analysis, synthetic aperture radar, deconvolution, and computer vision.

MAIT 679E - Computational Time Frequency Analysis

Nail Gumerov - Dr. Gumerov is a research associate professor at UMIACS, and a member of the graduate faculty of AMSC. His research interests are broad and include many interdisciplinary areas where mathematical modeling and efficient ways of solution of mathematical problems are crucial. In particular his interests include problems in acoustical and electromagnetic scattering, multiphase fluid mechanics, nonlinear dynamics of bubbles and drops, self organization and their efficient solution via fast and accurate algorithms.

MAIT 627 - Fast Multipole Methods

Anton J. Haug - Anton J. Haug is a member of the Acoustical Society of America and the IEEE. He received the B.S. degree from State University of New York at Stonybrook, New York, the MA degree from City University of New York at Queens College, New York, and the Ph.D. from Catholic University of Washington D.C., in 1964, 1968, and 1974, respectively, all in physics. He is currently employed by the MITRE Corporation where he is responsible for a variety of tasks, including the development of a tactical control stimulator for the testing of new submarine tactical control systems, the analysis and development of nonlinear trackers for submarine sonar and distributed sensor systems and the analysis of distributed sensor system models for the Homeland Defense Department. He also has an interest in nonlinear, non-Gaussian estimation techniques for application to problems in complexity theory. For the past thirty five years he has worked in a variety of defense contractor organizations, including the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, Planning Systems Incorporated, EG&G, Martin Marietta, Intermetrics, and MITRE. His main work focus has been in analysis and development of sonar detection, tracking and classification systems.
