What is... Semidefinite programming?

Student-Run Applied & Math Seminar

Speaker: Federico Castillo, UC Davis
Location: 2112 MSB
Start time: Wed, Feb 17 2016, 12:10PM

The idea is to go over the very basics of semidefinite optimization. To illustrate the diversity of applications we will explain the relation with nonnegative real polynomials and chromatic numbers of graphs. Basic linear algebra is all that is required.
