Biomathematics Seminar: A Markov Chain Monte Carlo method for estimating the boundary of a membrane.

Presented by David Epstein, Warwick

12 March 2008 14:00 in Derman Christopherson Room (CLC)

Blurred images: how they are an inevitable consequence of the wave nature of
Attempts to deblur mathematically.
Noise, and why stochastic considerations are relevant.
Sampling from a distribution: independent samples.
Sampling from a distribution using MCMC (Markov Chain Monte Carlo).
Examples with simulated data.
Example with real data from Conrad Mullineaux (Biological Sciences, QMUL)

The technique used is standard in modern statistics, though the details are
specific to the situation.
