Title: Aggregated Subgradient Methods in Nonsmooth Optimization
Date and Time: Friday, May 10th, 3.00pm – 4.00pm
Location: Building 8 Level 9 Room 66 (AGR) RMIT City campus
|Abstract: In this talk, we discuss aggregate subgradient methods for solving nonsmooth optimization problems. Our emphasize will be on the aggregate subgradient method for solving unconstrained nonsmooth difference of convex (DC) optimization problems. We discuss convergence results, present results of numerical experiments using some academic test problems and compare the aggregate subgradient method with several other nonsmooth DC optimization solvers
