            Wednesday, November 14, 2012 Presented By Robert Sherwin, M.D. C.N.H. Long Professor of Medicine (Endocrinology) Director, Diabetes Endocrinology Research Center at Yale University School of Medicine Section Chief, Endocrinology Director, Yale Center for Clinical Investigation Dr. Sherwin revisits the control center for glucose homeostasis within the brain, as proposed one and a half centuries ago. Fast forward to present day for an intellectual discussion on the ventromedial hypothalamus’ role in glucose counterregulation. This mechanism paints the picture of hypoglycemia-induced adaptations in brain fuel metabolism as it coalesces into homeostasis across the blood-brain barrier. Finally, he will go back to Claude Bernard’s original idea and present data suggesting insulin in the brain may contribute to type 2 diabetes, eating behavior and cognitive function.

                    • Sparse Sensing with Coprime Sampling Lattices

                      Abstract Imagine we have a pair of uniform samplers operating simultaneously on a signal. With the sampling rates arbitrarily small, is it possible to extract any useful information about the signal at all? It turns out that under some conditions of stationarity it is possible to recover second order statistical information, which is sufficient for many applications. For example, from samples of x(t) taken at the sparse rates fs=M and fs=N (where M and N are arbitrarily large but coprime), it is possible to estimate the autocorrelations at the dense sampling rate fs: The enabling principle in these applications comes from the theory of sparse coprime sampling. This talk focusses on this theory. Although the technique has surfaced in some applications in the distant past, a systematic development of the theory has evaded attention. We discuss both the one and multidimensional cases, and present applications both for temporal and spatial signals. In the multidimensional case, coprime sampling involves the construction of coprime lattices, a very interesting problem mathematically. One outcome of the theory is that under some conditions it is possible to combine two DFT filter banks with M and N bands and make them operate like an MN-band filter bank. Similarly it is possible to combine two sensor arrays with M and N sensors, such that there are O(MN) degrees of freedom, say, for beamforming and direction-of-arrival estimation (e.g., O(MN) sources can be identified with M +N sensors). Similarly it is possible to compute a spectrum with resolution proportional to 1=MN by combining two systems which would individually produce only resolutions of 1=N and 1=M: A non standard application of this theory is in channel identification: somewhat surprisingly, a complex channel (not just second order information) can be identified by sending a pulse stream at an arbitrarily low rate and sampling the channel output at another arbitrarily low rate, coprimaly related to the transmission rate. This talk will give an overview of sparse coprime sampling theory, and elaborate on some of the above applications. Biography P.P.
