    Title: From computer algebra to signal processing
    In 1795, the French mathematician de Prony published a method to fit a realvalued exponential model to some uniformly collected samples. This classical method in approximation theory is based on a linear recurrence relation among the data. After two centuries, in the field of computer algebra, Ben-Or and Tiwari presented an algorithm for interpolating sparse multivariate polynomials. Interestingly, these two methods are closely related. The cross-fertilization between these two has led to a series of exciting developments in exponential analysis and its applications in signal processing, including a multivariate exponential analysis method that does not suffer from the well-known curse of dimensionality, a validated exponential analysis approach based on subsampling, and the breaking of the Nyquist constraint that has underpinned almost all digital signal applications so far.

    Title: Operations on Parametric Ideals
    We deal with ideals generated by polynomials with parametric coefficients, and introduce the notion of stabilities on ideal structures based on stability of forms of Gröbner bases. For these computations, we can apply comprehensive Gröbner systems effectively. Then, we consider stabilities on basic operations on ideals, such as intersection, quotient, saturation, and radical, and show that those are computable with help of comprehensive Gröbner systems. Moreover, as an advanced operation, we consider primary decomposition and discuss its computational tractability.

    Title: Proof Assistants and Foundations of Mathematics
    Reflecting on the history of the developments of mathematics and proof
    assistants, I will propose a design principle of a new proof assistant which provides an environment where mathematcics and metamathematics can be developed simultaneously in a seemless manner.
