This project will explore the use of message-passing algorithms for finding good sparse approximations of high-dimensional signals. In the simplest setting, the goal is to represent a vector by efficiently finding the best sparse linear combination of vectors from a given dictionary. The project will also investigate the application of these algorithms for lossy data compression. More details can be found at: www2.eng.cam.ac.uk/~rv285/phd_opening_2017.html
Applicants should have (or expect to obtain by the start date) at least a good 2.1 degree (and preferably a Masters degree) in an Engineering, Applied Mathematics, or Statistics with a good academic record. A strong mathematical background is essential, especially in probability/statistics and inference.
EPSRC funded studentships are available for Home and EU students. Home students and certain EU students will receive a full studentship including fees and Maintenance. EU students will receive a fees only award. Details on eligibility can be found of EPSRC Web site: www.epsrc.ac.uk/skills/students/help/eligibility
Applications should be made on-line via the Cambridge Graduate Admissions Office before the deadline: www.admin.cam.ac.uk/students/gradadmissions/prospec/apply with Dr Ramji Venkataramanan identified as the potential supervisor
