Contemporary Applications and Algorithms for Complementarity

10:45 AM-12:45 PM
Room:Atlanta 2

With more than three decades of research, the subject of complementarity problems and its numerous extensions has become a well-established and fruitful discipline within mathematical programming and applied mathematics. Sources of these problems are diverse and span numerous areas in engineering, economics, and sciences. The speakers in this minisymposium will discuss recent work and will address important questions in several application areas.

Organizers: Michael C. Ferris
University of Wisconsin, Madison
Jong-Shi Pang
Johns Hopkins University
