About Pedro Sanchez

Pedro P. Sanchez is a Professor in the
Computer Information Systems Department
Eastern Michigan University
Ypsilanti, Michigan.

Prof. Sanchez's most recent academic accomplishment is the publication of his paper

Extraction of Multidimensional Geometric Invariants from Range Dependent Signal Databases

in an issue of the international journal

Multidimensional Systems and Signal Processing.

This paper presents, among other contributions, a novel application of the Singular Value Decomposition (SVD). This decomposition is a mathematical tool that can be used as a 'knowledge filter' in all kinds of knowledge database environments. The SVD can also be applied to Data Analysis, Data Mining, and to establish priorities in Decision Support Systems application software. The SVD has also been used as a filter for encryption in computer security systems. The paper was coauthored with two other researchers.

In addition, Prof. Sanchez was invited to deliver a set of lectures on the Singular Value Decomposition (and other Matrix Algebra applications) to an international audience of Economists and Social Scientists affiliated with the Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR). The lectures were delivered during the Educational Summer Program of the Consortium, which was based this past summer (2003) at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor , Michigan .
