Mathematician Michael Lacey’s academic journey

If you think mathematics is a tough subject, think again. Here is a man with a math doctorate, that may not be something of ‘wonder’ for you, but for some of us, well, no words.

His name was Michael Thoreau Lacey, a renowned American Mathematician born on September 26th, 1959. In the year 1987, Lacey received his Ph.D. degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign where he studied under Walter Philipp.

Michael is well known for his contributions on mathematics branch, Probability. In fact, it was his primary area of research during his degree thesis during his university days. To be specific, Michael dealt with Banach spaces which is more of functional analysis of a vector with its norm defined.

Through his incredible ability to solve mathematical problems, Michael contributed to definition and formulation of the law of the iterated logarithm, which is a commonly used law in solving probability problems.

Through this law of probability, Michael made it easy for learners to describe the impact (magnitude) of a stochastic object (some random steps such as integers found along the number line). Michael helped solve the problem that involved such random walks as well as characteristics functions.

After his university days, Michael shifted his study top include probability, the study of dynamical systems and related problems and harmonic analysis (his personal best). To quench your curiosity, harmonic analysis is a branch of mathematics that deals with study and representation of related sets (functions) in the form of simple waves with little of Fourier analysis spicing.

Michael also joined the Louisiana State University as well as the University of North Carolina based in Chapel Hill for his postdoctoral responsibilities and to prove his mathematics understanding for the doubting Thomases.

During his period at the University of North Carolina, Michael together with his mentor Walter Philipp made an instrumental discovery that helped to shape Probability theory. They performed a next-to-perfect central limit theorem (CLT). Read more: Michael Lacey | Wikipedia

After this epic breakthrough, Michael worked at Indiana University from the year 1989 to 1996 where he was honored with a Postdoctoral Fellowship by National Science Foundation.

At around the same time, Mr. Lacey continued with his phenomenal mathematical experiments and this time around, and he shifted his focus to signal processing through the Hilbert transform.

In 1996, Michael and Christoph Thiele solved various problems related with Hilbert transform, an act that earned them Salem Prize which is an award named after a Greek Mathematician Raphael Salem, and it is given out annually to mathematicians who demonstrated outstanding work in Salem’s areas of interests which include Fourier series. Other awards included Guggenheim Fellowship in 2004.

Since then, Michael has been serving as the Professor of Mathematics at Georgia Institute of Technology. He joined American Mathematical Society as a fellow in 2012.

 

Talk Fusion; The All-In-One Video Marketing Solution

Talk Fusion has established themselves pretty strongly as one of the most popular video marketing companies on the internet. The reason? CEO and Founder Bob Reina has been working alongside the company every step of the way, tirelessly leading from the front while pushing for game changing innovations from the rest of his Talk Fusion associates. It seems like Talk Fusion and Bob Reina have finally been paid off for their hard work, too, as they were recently rewarded with a coveted industry honor. Technology Marketing Corporation, or TMC for short, recently announced the winners of their 2016 Communication Solutions Product of the Year Award — and Talk Fusion was on that list.

Talk Fusion received the reward for their work on the game changing Video Chat application. The Video Chat app has become a central part of Talk Fusion’s video marketing suite. The app can be downloaded for both Android and iOS devices and it utilizes WebRTC technology in order to maximize its efficiency. The Talk Fusion Video Chat app focuses on connecting people from any platform, anywhere on the planet so that they can chat face to face in real time. The application can be used for both businesses and personal conversations. Learn more: https://www.youtube.com/user/TalkFusionOfficial

Rich Tehrani is the CEO at TMC and it was he who made the winning announcements. Tehrani said that the winners of the award were, “True leaders within their industries.” Tehrani went on to explain their selection process for this award, pointing out that they look for honorees who “represent the best of the best products and solutions available on the market today.” Learn more: https://www.businessforhome.org/2016/07/talk-fusion-classified-as-triple-a-opportunity/

Bob Reina was quick to respond to the award and the rest of the Talk Fusion team echoed him. Reina said of the award, “This is just the beginning.” Reina is the kind of CEO who always directs praise right back to his team and that is exactly what happened here. Reina went on to praise his hard working IT team, praise the talk Fusion associates who sell their products, and praise TMC for offering them the award. Reina and Talk Fusion are far from done and we can’t wait to see what’s next.
