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…

Proponents of robust optimization typically make three claims concerning the value of the robust approach. The first is that robust optimization models lead to solutions whose expected cost is close…


The study of firstorder methods has largely dominated research in continuous optimization for the last decade, yet still the range of problems for which optimal firstorder methods have been…
