Because a recursive function calls itself, it will have multiple call frames on the call stack. In this video we show exactly why we should be concerned about this and why it will affect our function…

In this video we show how to take recursive definitions from mathematics and implement them in Python. To do this, we will need to have a function call itself in its own definition.

Recursion is a general concept that does not just apply to programming languages. In this video we show that recursion exists in mathematics and even natural language.

Computing reliable solutions to inverse problems is important in many applications such as biomedical imaging, computer graphics, and security. Regularization by incorporating prior knowledge is…

Tridiagonal matrices appear almost everywhere (like 2nd order differential operators).This talk grew out of four very different applications: 1. (positive definite) Completion to maximum…

Abstract: Fully autonomous vehicles, equipped with the ability to perceive a dynamic environment and act intelligently within it, is a moonshot goal for the field of robotics. The…
