Claudio Maccone and Stephane Dumas have developed new techniques that could be used in the task of analyzing possible SETI signals in a mathematical fashion. Claudio and Stephane will talk about the new ideas in the book 'Mathematical SETI' published in 2012. This book is intended for University-level courses on SETI and related fields for graduates, post-graduates and researchers, and so a preliminary background isassumed in college mathematics (like basic calculus, probability and stochastic processes), and also a basic background in astronomy and astronautics. Claudio and Stephane will give an introduction to the topics covered in the book, including:

1)    the Statistical Drake Equation and its extension to the Evolution of Life, Human History and “Entropy Progress”,

2)    the FOCAL spacecraft mission to the Sun's radio gravitational lensing location, and

3)    the use of the Karhunen-Loeve Transform (KLT) which can be used to analyze radio signals and extract potential SETI communications.
