The fifteen years following World War II saw the development of a wide range of theories of decision making and resource allocation. Notable fields arising from slim foundations included: sequential…




Elicitation is the study of mechanisms which incentivize the truthful reporting of private
information from selfminded agents. In this talk I will present a general theory of elicitation
grounded in…


Principal components analysis (PCA) is a wellknown technique for approximating a data set represented by a matrix by a low rank matrix. Here, we extend the idea of PCA to handle arbitrary data sets…


Selective Inference is the problem of testing hypotheses that are chosen or suggested by the
data. Inference after variable selection in highdimensional linear regression is a common
example of…


Within the broad field of personalized medicine, there has been a recent surge of clinical interest in the idea of responseguided dosing. Roughly speaking, the goal is to develop dosing strategies…


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…


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…
