Foundations of Distributed and Large Scale Computing Optimization

Lecturer : Emilie CHOUZENOUX et Ségolène MARTIN

Objective of the course :

The objective of this course is to introduce the theoretical background which makes it possible to develop efficient algorithms to successfully address these problems by taking advantage of modern multicore or distributed computing architectures. This course will be mainly focused on nonlinear optimization tools for dealing with convex problems. Proximal tools, splitting techniques and Majorization-Minimization strategies which are now very popular for processing massive datasets will be presented. Illustrations of these methods on various applicative examples will be provided.

Topics :

* Large scale optimization

* Proximal algorithms

* Majorization-Minimization methods

* Parallel optimization

* Distributed optimization strategies

Validation :

TP reports + exam



Organization of the courses:
