Paper Title:
Mathematics and Innovation in Engineering
  Abstract

We present some examples of mathematical discoveries whose original import was mainly theoretical but which later ended up triggering extraordinary ad- vances in engineering, sometimes all the way down to technological realizations and market products. The examples we cite include Markov chains and Markov random fields, spin glasses, large deviations and the inverse conductivity problem, and their effects in various areas such as communication and imaging technologies.
