Large parts of the new economy rely on data science and the application of machine learning. For handling these modern computational and statistical problems, optimization algorithms are of utmost importance. The typically large data sets involved in this context urge for new optimization techniques. Therefore, we are delighted to announce Julian Hall,  Tamara G. Kolda, Stephen Wright as speakers at the upcoming ALOP Autumn School entitled “Optimization in Machine Learning and Data Science.” Representing three top class authorities in their…

On Friday, September 8, 2017, Prof. Tim Kelley of North Carolina State University  will join the ALOP-Colloquium and present his recent work entitled   Anderson Acceleration   Abstract:   We will discuss recent results on the local convergence of Anderson Acceleration. This is an algorithm for accelerating the convergence of fixed point or Picard iteration. In this talk we will discuss the first convergence results for the method, illustrate the results with an application to radiative transport, discuss issues with…
