CAM Colloquium - Mike Todd: Computation, Multiplicity, and Comparative Statics of Cournot Equilibria in Integers

We give an efficient algorithm for computing a Cournot equilibrium when the producers are confined to integers, the inverse demand function is linear, and costs are quadratic. The method also…

CAM Colloquium - Adrian Lewis: Nonsmooth optimization: conditioning, convergence, and semi-algebraic models

Variational analysis has come of age. Long an elegant theoretical toolkit for variational mathematics and nonsmooth optimization, it now increasingly underpins the study of algorithms, and a rich…
