Stanford Mathematics presents Ingrid Daubechies "Mathematicians Art Historians & Conservators"

Mathematicians have helped art historians and art conservators reconstruct the famous Mantegna frescos, shattered into thousands of fragments by WWII bombing. Algorithms have helped to indentify "roll mates" - paintings whose canvases were cut from the same bolt - to remove virtually artifacts in preparation for a restoration campaign, and to reveal paintings hidden under visible works of art. This lecture will describe some of the mathematics that make these procedures possible.
