Colloquium - Tapia

If It Is Fast, Must It Always Be Newton's Method?
Rice University
9/8/2000
3:00pm-4:00pm

Throughout history mathematicians have proposed, modified, and tuned a particular new algorithm for solving a problem of interest. When the tuning process ends, often, inadvertently and unbeknownst to themselves and others, they have obtained a form of Newton's method. The speaker will discuss several instances of such activity from the ancient Greeks to contemporary computational optimization.

Hosted jointly with the Department of Applied Mathematics.
Coffee and cookies will be served at 2:30pm in ECOT 226.
