On October 5, 2016, Prof. Dr. Harbir Antil from George Mason University will join the ALOP-Colloquium and present his recent work. At 15:45 there will be a coffee hour in E10. At 16:15 the presentation will take place in HS10.Optimal control of fractional order PDEsAbstractDiffusion is the tendency of a substance to evenly spread into an available space, and is one of the most common physical processes. The classical models of diffusion lead to well-known equations. However, in recent times, it…

On October 24, 2016,  Prof. Dr. Georg Pflug  from the University of Vienna  will join the ALOP-Colloquium and present his recent work:Multistage Stochastic Optimization: Approximation, bounds and ambiguityAbstractMultistage stochastic programs are - in contrast to two-stage programs - difficult variational problems for which solutions can be found only in exceptional cases. For this reason, we have to approximate them by easier programs. We show how a distance between these problems can be found by a variant of a transportation distance, which…

On November 7, 2016,  Prof. Dr. Maria Dolores Ugarte  from the Universidad Publica de Navarra  will join the ALOP-Colloquium and present her recent work: Title:  Analyzing cancer mortality in small areas using Bayesian B-splines  Abstract: In recent years, models incorporating splines have been considered for smoothing risks in disease mapping.  Although these models are very fexible, they can be computationally demanding in certain cases. In this talk, several models including one, two, and three dimensional B-splines (penalized or un-penalized) are proposed…

On Thursday, January 19, 2017,  Prof. Dr. Armin Fuegenschuh from the Helmut Schmidt Universitaet Hamburg will join the ALOP-Colloquium and present his recent work entitledDesign Issues for Magnetic Rulers We deal with the design of a magnetic ruler as an absolute positioning system. Trapezoid-shaped magnetic areas are placed side by side, so that the resulting pattern enables a unique encoding of each position up to a micrometer level. The problem of finding a longest-possible ruler from a set of elementary…

On Monday, February 6, 2017,  Dr. Bart Vandereycken from the University of Geneva will join the ALOP-Colloquium and present his recent work Manifold optimization for low rank matrix and tensor completionThe minimisation of a smooth objective function subject to (matrix) rank constraints can sometimes be very effectively solved by methods from Riemannian optimisation. This is for instance the case with the low-rank matrix and tensor completion problems However, the standard theory of Riemannian optimisation leaves some questions unanswered regarding its theoretical and practical…

Der Workshop "Women in Optimization" findet vom 20. - 22. März 2017 an der Universität Trier statt.  Dieser Workshop richtet sich an Nachwuchswissenschaftlerinnen, Doktorandinnen und Studentinnen der Mathematik mit dem Schwerpunkt Optimierung. Das Ziel des Workshops liegt sowohl in der fachlichen Weiterbildung als auch in der Vernetzung innerhalb der Optimierungscommunity. In Fachvorträgen geladener Referentinnen möchten wir zum einen ein möglichst breites fachliches Spektrum der mathematischen Optimierung und der damit verbundenen Numerik präsentieren. Zum anderen möchten wir den Teilnehmerinnen verschiedene Karrieremodelle…
