David Donoho will be our 46th Annual Hogg & Craig Lecturer.
David Donoho is a mathematician who has made fundamental contributions to theoretical and computational statistics, as well as to signal processing and harmonic analysis. His algorithms have contributed significantly to our understanding of the maximum entropy principle, of the structure of robust procedures, and of sparse data description.
Early in the 1969-70 academic year, Professor Allen T. Craig announced his retirement. He gave a retirement talk in January 1970. During the 1970 summer, the department decided to establish a lecture series to honor Professor Craig. His January 1970 talk was the first in this series. The second Craig Lecturer was Frederick Mosteller, who delivered the lecture in May 1971. The subsequent Craig Lectures are usually held in April, and annual student awards are usually given at this time.
