Title: Tensor methods and applications
Abstract: Tensor models have been well established as a natural and powerful way of representing systems and data that involve multiple aspects/dimensions. Assisted by their unique ability to unveil latent information through tensor decomposition methods, they have proved successful in numerous applications. In this talk, I will present some of our recent work and results on tensor methods, with example applications including wireless communications and remote sensing.
