On July 9, we will see a new face on campus: Dr. Thais Jordao. She is a professor of mathematics at the University of Sao Paulo, Sao Carlos, Brazil and will be visiting until July 28 to collaborate with Drs. Xingping Sun and William Bray.
Typically, Jordao researches analysis in general and approximation theory. She is joining us at Missouri State to work on their joint research project on finite rank spherical averaging operators that achieve optimal approximation orders.
For example, in weather forecasting, collecting and processing data is important to understand the operation of complex systems (weather). Bray, Sun and Jordao are using averaging operators to do the same kind of research.
We can’t wait to see how far they go with it. Welcome to campus, Dr. Jordao!
