For more than thirty years, Arkadi Nemirovski has been a leader in continuous optimization. He has played central roles in three of the major breakthroughs in optimization, namely, the ellipsoid method for convex optimization, the extension of modern interior-point methods to convex optimization, and the development of robust optimization. All of these contributions have had tremendous impact, going significantly beyond the original domain of the discoveries in their theoretical and practical consequences.
Arkadi Nemirovski awarded an honorary DMath Degree
