Apologies for the late notice - to avoid conflict with the SML talk of Michael Jordan, we have moved our seminar to 2PM tomorrow (also new room: Sherrerd 125).


-----   Princeton Optimization Seminar   -----

DATE:  Wednesday, March 4 (note the unusual date)

TIME:  2:00 pm

LOCATION:  Sherrerd Hall 125

SPEAKER:  Daniel Bienstock, Columbia University

TITLE:  Solving QCQPs

Quadratically constrained quadratic programs have attracted theoretical interest for some time, especially in the special case of the trust-region subproblem and as a special case of polynomial optimization problems. QCQPs can be very difficult optimization problems, with behavior incorporating nasty characteristics of discrete optimization problems as well as very difficult numerics, and in some applications, large size. Currently, a compelling application focuses on the computation of power flows in electrical transmission systems. In this talk we will focus on recent theoretical and algorithmic developments and will also provide an overview of parts of the field.
Daniel Bienstock is a professor at the departments of Industrial Engineering and Operations Research, and Applied Physics and Applied Math, at Columbia University, where he has been since 1989. His current work focuses on nonconvex and discrete optimization, both from a theoretical and computational standpoint, and on applications of optimization to power grid related problems. He is an INFORMS Fellow and editor-in-chief of Mathematical Programming C. Please see www.columbia.edu/~dano<http://www.columbia.edu/~dano> for papers and related links.
