Stanley Osher (born April 24, 1942) is an American mathematician, known for his many contributions in shock capturing, level set methods, and PDE-based methods in computer vision and image processing. Osher is a professor at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), Director of Special Projects in the Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics (IPAM) and member of the California NanoSystems Institute (CNSI) at UCLA. He has a daughter, Kathryn, and a son, Joel.

Education

Research interests

Osher is listed as an ISI highly cited researcher.[1]

Research contributions

Osher was the inventor (or co-inventor) and developer of many highly successful numerical methods for computational physics, image processing and other fields, including:

Osher has founded (or co-founded) three successful companies:

  • Cognitech (with Rudin)
  • Level Set Systems
  • Luminescent Technologies (with Yablonovitch)

Osher has been a thesis advisor for at least 53 PhD students, with 188 descendants, as well as postdoctoral adviser and collaborator for many applied mathematicians. His Ph.D. students have been evenly distributed among academia and industry and labs, most of them are involved in applying mathematical and computational tools to industrial or scientific application areas.
