Title: Optimization, Entropy and Differential Equations

Speaker: Liu Hailiang刘海亮教授

Time: 10:00 - 11:00, July 27, 2018

Location: Center for Mathematical Sciences, Room 813

Abstract:Interesting things are often understood in different ways. In this talk I choose three topics such as optimization, entropy and differential equations, and show by examples how these concepts are closely related in mathematically formulating the same problem, but each has a distinct flavor of its own.  The examples include Nestorov’s accelerated scheme, Newton’s apple,  Osher’s level set, and Kompaneets’ equation for photon transport.
