【澳门太阳2007网址】Optimization Theory and Big Data Applications

Subject: Optimization Theory and Big Data Applications
Lecturer: Zhiquan Luo, University of Minnesota, USA
Host: Jianming Ning, Vice President of Xiangtan University
Time: 3:00 PM, June 29, 2016 (Wednesday)
Venue: Lecture Hall of Library, Xiangtan University
Academician of the Academy of Sciences of the Royal Academy of Canada, full professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Minnesota, IEEE Fellow, SIAM Fellow. The Thompson Reuters Highly cited Researcher. The editor-in-chief of IEEE Transaction on Signal Processing, the editor of Mathematics of Operations Research, Management Science and Mathematical Programming. 
Prof. Luo. received his PhD Degree in Operations Research from Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1989. From 1989 to 2003, he held a faculty position in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, McMaster University, Canada and a Canada Research Chair in Information Processing. Then, he moved to Minnesota in April 2003 and has since been a full professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer   Engineering, University of Minnesota. He also hold an endowed ADC Chair in Digital Technology. Currently, he is the vice president of The Chinese University of Hong Kong. 
His general research interests include the theory, design and analysis of efficient optimization algorithms with application to data communication, wireless and optical networks and systems, and signal processing.
He is especially interested in computation/communication complexity issues arising from these problem areas. This includes both providing theoretical lower bounds on the complexity and designing efficient methods whose complexity closely match the lower bounds. His current research interest lies in the theory of multi-user communications and the application of optimization techniques to the design of multi-antenna communication systems.
