Voorhees professor has work published in mathematics journal

January 14, 2014

 

Xiqiang Zheng recently published a paper titled "Fast Fourier Transform on FCC and BCC Lattices With Outputs on FCC and BCC Lattices Respectively'' in the December 2013 issue of Journal of Mathematical Imaging and Vision.

In this paper, Zheng, along with additional author, Feng Gu, a former Voorhees professor, developed fast Fourier transform (FFT) methods on face centered cubic (FCC) and body centered cubic (BCC) lattices that allow more efficient three dimensional medical CT imaging based on x-ray scanning. 

Zheng has been teaching at Voorhees since 2008. His current research interests include image processing and scientific computation on two and three dimensional optimal sampling lattices: hexagonal, FCC, and BCC lattices. He has published papers in several professional journals such as Journal of Mathematical Imaging and Vision, Journal of Mathematics and the Arts, Journal of Fractals, and International Journal of Digital Earth.

He received his master's degree in mathematics from Jiangxi University in 1991. Zheng taught at Nanchang Institute of Aeronautical Technology in China until he came to the United States to pursue his doctoral degree. He obtained his doctoral degree in applied mathematics in 2007 from the University of Florida.
