 CARMA RHD MEETING
 Location: Room V205, Mathematics Building (Callaghan Campus) The University of Newcastle
 Dates: Thu, 25^{th} Sep 2014  Thu, 25^{th} Sep 2014
 Ohab Giladi and Fabian Rigterink will present some of their work.
 Speaker: Ohad Giladi, CARMA, The University of Newcastle
 Title: The Ribe Program
 Abstract for The Ribe Program:
In 1976, Ribe showed that if two Banach spaces are uniformly homeomorphic, then their finite dimensional subspaces are similar in some sense. This suggests that properties of Banach spaces which depend only on finitely many vectors should have a purely metric characterization. We will shortly discuss the history of the Ribe program, as well as some recent developments.
 Speaker: Fabian Rigterink , The University of Newcastle
 Title: Global optimization of generalized pooling problems
 Abstract for Global optimization of generalized pooling problems:
In particular:
 Linear relaxations of bilinear (multilinear) terms
 A few results on the strength of linear relaxations of bilinear (multilinear) functions
 Univariate and bivariate (multivariate) partitioning of variables
 Properties of the McCormick relaxation
 Equal vs. unequal segment lengths
