• PHD CONFIRMATION SEMINAR
  • Speaker: Scott Lindstrom, CARMA, The University of Newcastle
  • Title: Experimental Variations on Convex and Non-Convex Optimization
  • Location: Room V205, Mathematics Building (Callaghan Campus) The University of Newcastle
  • Time and Date: 10:00 am, Mon, 15th Aug 2016
  • Abstract:

    We discuss ongoing work in convex and non-convex optimization. In the convex setting, we use symbolic computation to study problems which require minimizing a function subject to constraints. In the non-convex setting, we use a variety of computational means to study the behavior of iterated Douglas-Rachford method to solve feasibility problems, finding an element in the intersection of several sets.
