Parallel Iterative Optimization Algorithms for Large-Scale Empirical Minimization Problem

Abstract:

In the past two decades convex optimization gained increasing popularity. However, the classic interior point methods do not scale well with the problem dimensions. Furthermore, in applications that do not exhibit conventional convexity, general purpose gradient methods often show slow convergence.

Recently a variety of iterative descent direction methods for alrge-scale empirical optimization problems gained interest, which can be customized to the requirements of specific applications, accounting for their underlying problem structures and (parallel) hardware architectures. In this talk, we capture this trend and address the challenges in designing efficient customized optimization procedures.

The seminar »KL-Regelungstechnik« (Kaiserslautern – Control Theory and Control Engineering) is organized by our department as well as several research groups of the TU Kaiserslautern:

  • Technomathematics (Dep. of Mathematics)
  • Mechatronics in Mechenical and Automotive Engineering (Dep. of Mechanical and Process Engineering)
  • Automation Control (Dep. of Electrical and Computer Engineering)
  • Electromobility (Dep. of Electrical and Computer Engineering)

The seminar takes place at the ITWM every 1st Tuesday of a month (besides holidays and summer break). Aims are broadening of experiences and exchange of scientific views – also beyond the organizing groups.

Typical subjects of talks are:

  • ongoing or recently finished graduations and doctoral theses
  • current research and projects

The topics vary from mathematical methods to technical implementations. Usually, the talks present research results. However, some show open issues for brainstorming and inputs from the audience.
