Jelena Kovacevic, professor of biomedical engineering and ECE, is the co-author of a paper among the Ten Top Cited for the Journal of Applied and Harmonic Analysis since the journal began publication in 1993.
The paper, "Quantized Frame Expansions with Erasures," Volume 10, Issue 3, 2001, Pp 203-233, V.K. Goyal, J. Kovacevic, and J. A. Kelner, looks into how to provide robustness in the transmission of data in the presence of losses (erasures) by using redundant signal representations known as frames.
The article introduced the mathematical community to the problem, by phrasing it in simple terms: how does one design a rectangular matrix of size MxN (M>N) such that any NxN submatrix is full rank. The article had a large body of work follow it.
