Rice’s Method and Combinatorial Identities

 

Prof. Helmut Prodinger an der TeWi

Ort: I.2.01

Zeit: Mittwoch, 14.12.2016, 10:00 Uhr s. t.

Abstract:

The method in question belongs to the analytic toolkit of the Analysis of Algorithms. It is based on replacing a certain alternating sum by a contour integral which is evaluated asymptotically via residues. It can also be used to proved exact formulas (identities), in which case the framework of contour integrals can be replaced by elementary partial fraction decomposition.

Discrete regularization of parameter identification problems

 

Prof. Dr. Christian Clason an der TeWi

Ort: I.2.01

Zeit: Mittwoch, 16.11.2016, 10:00 Uhr s. t.

Abstract:

We consider linear and nonlinear parameter identification problems, where the unknown distributed parameter is known to take on values only from a discrete given set. This property can be promoted with the aid of a convex penalty. A regularized semismooth Newton method allows the numerical solution of the corresponding Tikhonov functional.
Numerical examples illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed approach.

A contour algorithm for computing stable fiber bundles of nonautonomous, noninvertible maps

PD Dr. Thorsten Hüls an der TeWi

 

Ort: Raum I.2.01

Zeit: Mittwoch, 17.02.2016, 10:00 Uhr c. t.

Abstract:

Stable fiber bundles are the nonautonomous analog of stable manifolds and these objects provide valuable information on the underlying dynamics. We propose an algorithm for their approximation that is based on computing zero contours of a particular operator. The resulting program applies to a wide class of models, including noninvertible and nonautonomous discrete time systems. Precise error estimates are provided and fiber bundles are computed for several examples. Finally, we apply the contour algorithm to (non)autonomous ODEs. For the famous three-dimensional Lorenz system, we calculate several approximations of the two-dimensional Lorenz manifold.

Efficient time integrators for highly oscillatory Schrödinger equations

 

Univ.-Prof. Dr. Mechthild Thalhammer an der TeWi

 

Ort: Raum I.2.01

Zeit: Donnerstag, 14.01.2016, 10:00 Uhr s. t.

Abstract:

In this talk, I shall introduce multi-revolution composition methods (MRCM) for highly oscillatory evolution equations and analyse their error behaviour. The scope of applications in particular includes time-dependent linear Schrödinger equations, where the realisation of the composition approach relies on time-splitting pseudo-spectral methods. Numerical experiments illustrate and complement the theoretical investigations.

Removing compression artifacts from images

 

Ass.-Prof. Dr. Kamil Kazimierski an der TeWi

 

Ort: I.2.01

Zeit: Mittwoch, 09.12.2015, 11:00 Uhr s. t.

Abstract:

Compression is the quintessential tool for effcient storage of images. However, ugly artifacts go hand in hand with compression. In this talk I will discuss how the so called total generalized variation (TGV) can be employed to mitigate the artifacts caused by compression.

This is a joint work with Dr. Martin Holler, Graz University.

Ramanujan and his Impact on my Research

 

Prof. Helmut Prodinger an der TeWi

Ort: I.2.01

Zeit: Donnerstag, 19.11.2015, 15:00 Uhr s. t.

Abstract:

With the renewed interested in Ramanujan, which resulted in a recent movie, I would like to review, for the benefit of a younger generation of researchers, some results of Ramanujan that played a role in my own work.

Examples: Modular identities and digital search trees, asymptotic solution of a difference equation, Ramanujan’s Q(n)-function, Continued fractions and a new q-tangent function, one parameter extensions of Rogers-Ramanujan identities.

Comparing polyhedral relaxations via volume

 

Ort: I.2.01

Prof. Jon Lee an der TeWi

Zeit: Mittwoch, 14.10.2015, 10:00 Uhr s. t.

Abstract:

With W. Morris in 1992, I introduced the idea of comparing polytopes relevant to combinatorial optimization via calculation of n-dimensional volumes. I will review some of that work (related to fixed-charge probelms) and describe some new work, with E. Speakman, relevant to the spatial branch-and-bound approach to global optimization. In this new work, we calculate exact expressions for 4-dimensional volumes of natural parametric families of polytopes relevant to different convex relaxations of trilinear monomials. As a consequence, we have practical guidance: (i) for tuning an aspect of spatial branch-and-bound implementations, (ii) at the modeling level.

Scaling limits of unlabelled trees

Ort: I.0.08

Dipl.-Math. Benedikt Stufler an der TeWi

Zeit: Montag, 05.10.2015, 11:00 Uhr s. t.

Abstract:

The continuum random tree (CRT) was constructed by David Aldous in the early nineties and plays a major role in the study of typical metric properties of large random trees and graphs. We discuss recent results that establish the CRT as scaling limit of different models of random unlabelled trees.

Convexification and Dantzig-Wolfe decompositions for the exact k-item quadratic knapsack problem


Ort: I.2.01

Lucas Létocart an der TeWi

Zeit: Mittwoch, 16.09.2015, 11:00 Uhr s. t.

Abstract:

The 0-1 exact k-item quadratic knapsack problem consists of maximizing a quadratic objective function subject to two linear constraints, a capacity constraint and an equality cardinality constraint, with binary variables. We propose a method based on Dantzig-Wolfe decompositions and on quadratic convex reformulations in order to improve the current best upper bounds for this problem.
