Research Interests

Markus Püschel's research is at the intersection of engineering, computer science, and mathematics. Below are two examples.

SPIRAL: Automating the Development of Performance Software

Fast changing and increasingly parallel computer architectures pose a difficult task for developers of high performance software in signal processing, communication, and scientific computing. The goal of SPIRAL is to completely automate the implementation and optimization of performance-critical functionality. SPIRAL builds on and combines techniques from compilers, programming languages, symbolic computation, mathematics, machine learning, and computer architecture.

SMART: Algebraic Signal Processing Theory

The goal of SMART is to explore and exploit the relationship between signal processing and abstract algebra. The most comprehensive example is a new, axiomatic approach and generalization of signal processing, called "Algebraic Signal Processing Theory," that we developed. Benefits of this theory include a comprehensive theory of fast algorithms and the derivation of new SP frameworks.
