    Recent studies of convex functionals and their related nonlinear eigenvalue problems show surprising analogies to harmonic analysis based on classical transforms (e.g. Fourier). In this talk the total-variation transform will be introduced along with some theoretical results. Applications related to image decomposition, texture processing and face fusion will be shown. Extensions to graphs and a new interpretation of gradient descent will also be discussed.

    In the spirit of our time, sloppy image processing and completely fabricated data are put in the same ‘basket’ of misconduct, and the involved individuals are put to shame. However, misconduct is complex and delicate question, and alleged misconduct has been associated with the greatest scientists including Newton and Mendel. I will describe several historical cases of alleged misconduct – some remaining unclear to this day, and some resolved. These teach us that mistakes and errors are part of science, but as scientists, we have huge responsibility with respect to the data we publish – it’s not about the scientific ‘truth’, it’s about ‘accuracy’.

    Huge efforts are presently invested in several teams worldwide to digitally replicate, in details, large-scale brain circuits and then simulate their activity in the computer. Why? What type of understanding could emerge from such simulated brain-replicas? I will argue that such a replication/simulation process is unavoidable if we are to understand brain dynamics and circuit topology. Specifically, showing that the global ‘innate” topology of local cortical circuits emerges from the geometrical asymmetry of individual cortical neurones and that detailed simulations of cortical circuits provide novel insights into experimental results. Finally, I will introduce a new project on human cortical neurones and circuits, aiming to explore “What makes us human”.
