Philippe Angot, Aix-Marseille Universite, Recent advances on vector penalty-projection methods for low-Mach multiphase flows with strong stresses and open boundary conditions

August 27 | 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT

We discuss the efficiency of recent advances on the vector penalty-projection methods including the kinematic version which uses fast discrete Helmholtz-Hodge decompositions on edge-based generalized MAC-type unstructured meshes. These methods are especially designed for the computation of incompressible or low-Mach…

Quoc Tran-Dinh, UNC-Chapel Hill Dept. of Statistics and Operations Research, Smooth Structures in Convex Functions and Applications to Proximal-Based Methods

September 3 | 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT

In this talk, we demonstrate one way of exploiting smooth structures hidden in convex functions to develop optimization algorithms. Our key idea is to generalize a powerful concept so-called "self-concordance" introduced by Y. Nesterov and A. Nemirovskii to a broader class of convex functions.…
