Chair: John Guckenheimer, President, SIAM, and Cornell University
A desire to optimize---to do the best thing---is ubiquitous throughout mathematics, computing, science, and engineering (not to mention everyday life). Research in optimization comes in forms ranging from mathematical theory to practical rules of thumb, from general-purpose methods to application-specific heuristics. This talk will be a melange of topics involving recent work in non-derivative optimization and interior methods, chosen by the speaker to convey an overview of selected themes in optimization today. The punch line will be the joy of seeking, and finding, underlying commonalities and substantive distinctions.
