Optimization: Theory, Algorithms, Applications Lecture SeriesExport this event to calendar

Wednesday, August 11, 2021 — 10:00 AM EDT

Title: TBA

Speaker: Jacek Gondzio
Affiliation: University of Edinburgh
Zoom: Register through The Fields Institute

Abstract: 

Having briefly introduced the key ideas which make interior point methods (IPMs) such a powerful optimization approach, I shall focus on a solution of the Newton systems and in particular on the use of iterative (Krylov-subspace) techniques to perform this task.

The Newton systems arising in IPMs are inherently ill-conditioned and preconditioning is a must to make iterative methods work.

A re-design of IPMs to enable the use of iterative techniques provides a completely new perspective on these methods.

I will address both theoretical and practical aspects of it.Such a re-design opens interesting opportunities which include:

(i) relaxing the rigid structure of IPMs, and

(ii) developing matrix-free variants of the method.

Several such developments will be briefly discussed including some astonishing extensions of IPMs tuned to inverse problems and various formulations of sparse approximation problems.
