Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences to fund research programme led by Adam Letchford
Published 22 October 2010
Professsor Adam Letchford (Management Science) has been awarded funding by the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences in Cambridge to organise a research programme in polynomial optimisation.
This is an inter-disciplinary topic, drawing on several branches of mathematics, and having applications in operational research, statistics, computer science, engineering and the physical sciences.
The four-week programme, which will include a workshop, tutorials with distinguished speakers, talks, networking events and research workshops on sub-topics, will be co-organised by Jean B. Lasserre (Laboratory of Analysis and Architecture of Systems, Toulouse) and Markus Schweighofer (Universität Konstanz). The workshop is due to take place in 2013.
