  • 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
  • Abstract:

    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).
