Applications of Large-Scale Optimization

Sponsored by SIAM Activity Group on Optimization

2:00 PM-4:00 PM
Room: Sidney Smith 1073

Practical optimization is playing an increasingly important role in engineering, computational science, and industry. This is partially explained by the recent development of optimization methodologies that exploit problem structure and hence can be applied to large-scale problems. The purpose of this minisymposium is to illustrate this trend with recent work on applied optimization, with emphasis on industrial and financial concerns.
