- CARMA SEMINAR
- Speaker: Mr Dmitriy Drusvyatskiy, School of Operations Research and Information Engineering, Cornell University
- Title: Active sets, steepest descent, and smooth approximations of functions
- Location: Room V129, Mathematics Building (Callaghan Campus) The University of Newcastle
- Time and Date: 4:00 pm, Thu, 21st Feb 2013
Three ideas --- active sets, steepest descent, and smooth approximations of functions --- permeate nonsmooth optimization. I will give a fresh perspective on these concepts, and illustrate how many results in these areas can be strengthened in the semi-algebraic setting.
This is joint work with A.D. Ioffe (Technion), A.S. Lewis (Cornell),
and M. Larsson (EPFL).
