“Young Investigator Award by Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA)”

Friday, November 19, 2010

Kevin Tang was awarded an Young Invesigator Award by Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) to support his research project entitled, "Constructive Sparse Signal Recovery with Verifiable Guarantee".

Facing the challenges of timely identifying, locating and eliminating malfunctioning (or comprised) components in a complex system under incomplete information, this project proposes a constructive and algorithmic approach for threat or anomaly detection by exploiting various sparsity structures therein. A special feature of this project that dierentiates it from many existing related work is the focus of looking for explicit algorithmic solutions to the inference problems with finite dimensions.
