September 30, 2014 Margaret Cheney was the invited speaker for the Jean E. Rubin Memorial Lecture for the 8th Annual Women in Mathematics held at Purdue University. The title of you talk was: Introduction to Synthetic-Aperture Radar Imaging. Radar imaging is a technology that has been developed, very successfully, within the engineering community during the last 50 years. Radar systems on satellites now make beautiful images of regions of our earth and of other planets such as Venus. One of the key components of this impressive technology is mathematics, and many of the open problems are mathematical ones.

This lecture explained, from first principles, some of the basics of radar and the mathematics involved in producing high-resolution radar images.


Jean E. Rubin was Professor of Mathematics at Purdue University from 1967 until her death in 2002. She received a B.S. from Queens College in New York City in 1948, an M.A. from Columbia in 1949, and a Ph.D. from Stanford in 1955. She taught at Oregon and Michigan State before coming to Purdue. Professor Rubin was the author of more than 40 papers and five books in set theory and questions related to the axiom of choice.
