07-28, 15:00–15:25 (US/Eastern), 32-141

Join us for ASE-60, where we celebrate the life and the career of Professor Alan Stuart Edelman, on the occasion of his 60th birthday: https://math.mit.edu/events/ase60celebration/


A variety of tasks in computer graphics and 3D modeling involve optimization problems whose variables encode a shape or geometric quantity. These problems can be extremely stiff, nonlinear, and strongly constrained. In this talk, I will share how hidden structures in shape optimization problems can lead to efficient and even convex formulations, enabling a variety of applications.
