Applications of Mathematics in Daily Life

Many of our daily lives involve math – from cooking a roast and knowing its duration to traveling and planning journey times or creating computer software, there’s math everywhere! Math is an essential subject to understand and learn; mathematics develops problem-solving abilities in students while increasing cognitive capacities – leading to smarter individuals in the…

Multi-pixel retrieval of structural and optical parameters in a 2D scene with a path-recycling Monte Carlo forward model and a new Bayesian inference engine

The vast majority of physics-based retrieval algorithms used in remote sensing of atmosphere and/or surface¬†properties are multi- or hyper-spectral in nature, some use multi-angle information as well; recently, polarization¬†diversity has been added to the available input from sensors and accordingly modeled with vector radiative transfer¬†codes. At any rate, a single pixel is processed at a…
