CSRC Colloquium – Sven Leffer
March 3, 2023 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Title: Nonlinear Optimization at the National Labs
Abstract: We review a range of challenging DOE applications in design and control that are formulated as nonlinear optimization problems, ranging from the modeling of gas and electricity networks, over the design of new materials, to the analysis of complex data. We show how research into new algorithms and solution techniques enables DOE scientists to solve these applications.
