The Department of Mathematics, Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Patna is organizing an Online Course on Recent Trends in Convex Optimization: Theory, Algorithm, and Applications from October 29 to 31, 2020.
Indian Institute of Technology Patna (abbreviated IIT Patna or IITP) is an autonomous institute of education and research in science, engineering, and technology located in Patna, India. It is recognized as an Institute of National Importance by the Government of India. It is one of the new IITs established by an Act of the Indian Parliament on August 6, 2008.
The permanent campus of IIT Patna is located at Bihta which is approximately 30 km from Patna and has been fully operational since 2015.
This online CEP will provide a forum for reviewing and discussing all aspects of convex optimization theory, both for scalar and multiobjective optimization problems and several algorithms, which are widely used to solve convex optimization problems. The program includes, but is not limited to the following topics:
- Basics of Convex Optimization Theory
- Steepest Descent Method
- Accelerated Gradient Descent Method
- Subgradient Method and Complexity Analysis
- Modified Newton’s Method
- Interior Point and Lemke’s Algorithms
- Applications in Machine Learning & Signal Processing
- Prof. Sandeep Juneja, TIFR Mumbai
- Prof. S. K. Mishra, BHU Varanasi
- Prof. S. K. Neogy, ISI Delhi
- Prof. Joydeep Dutta, IIT Kanpur
- Prof. Geetanjali Panda, IIT Kharagpur
- Prof. Ketan Rajawat, IIT Kanpur
The course is suitable for freshers (UG/ PG including Ph.D. students), Scientists in R&D organizations, Faculty Members, and professionals interested in the domains involving research and development, in theory, Algorithms, and Applications of convex optimization in both smooth and non-smooth setting.
The participation fee of Rs. 1000/- for the CEP will be accepted only through e-transfer/ RTGS/ NEFT.
The registration fee can be paid online by clicking here.
