Title: A primal-dual interior-point algorithm fo rnonsymmetric conic optimization

Speaker: Erling D. Andersen
Affiliation: Mosek ApS
Zoom: Register through The Fields Institute

Abstract:

It is well known that primal-dual interior-point algorithms for linear optimization can easily be extended to the case of symmetric conic optimization, as shown by Nesterov and Todd (NT) in their 1997 paer about self-scaled barriers. Although many convex optimization problems can be expressed using symmetric cones then models involving for instance exponential functions do not belong to the class of symmetric conic optimization problems.

Title: Macdonald polynomials and the multispecies zero range process

Speaker: Olya Mandelshtam
Affiliation: University of Waterloo
Zoom: Please email Emma Watson

Abstract:

Over the last couple of decades, the theory of special functions and symmetric functions have found unexpected connections to various interacting particle systems. Macdonald polynomials are a family of symmetric functions that are known to have remarkable connections to a well-studied particle model called the ASEP. It is natural to ask whether the modified Macdonald polynomials can be obtained using a combinatorial gadget for some other particle system.

Title: HiGHS: Theory, software and Impact

Speaker: Julian Hall
Affiliation: University of Edinburgh
Zoom: Register through The Fields Institute

Abstract:

Since Dantzig formulated the simplex algorithm in 1947, the widespread need to solve linear optimization problems drove the development of algorithmic and computational techniques for decades, yielding several high performance commercial and open source software systems. This talk will focus on the Edinburgh-based work on solving large scale sparse linear programming problems that underpins the high performance open source linear optimization software, HiGHS, the challenges of developing such software, and the Impact that it has achieved.
