(a) Extrapolation, (b) UV astronomy
(a) This project attempts to understand the extrapolation by which conclusions are reached in the absence of hard information. Extrapolation exists outside the strict mathematical domain and may be a basic ability of all life forms. I would like to create a unified view of extrapolation, probably in the form of a monograph, following a thorough literature survey and consultations with experts.
(b) I am the Principal Investigator of TAUVEX, a small space telescope dedicated to wide-field ultraviolet (UV) imaging. TAUVEX will be launched in 2009 and will perform a deep survey of a small fraction of the sky. Following the launch and the beginning of routine space exploitation, I would like to work together with LAS people with UV astronomy experience to understand the results.
