We congratulate Christian Kirches on receiving a European Research Council Consolidator Grant. His project Scalable Control Approximations for Resource Constrained Environments (SCARCE) will be supported with a grant of 2 million euros over a period of 5 years.
Our paper "Extended Successive Convex Approximation for Phase Retrieval with Dictionary Learning" (Tianyi Liu, Andreas M. Tillmann, Yang Yang, Yonina C. Eldar and Marius Pesavento) has been accepted for publication in IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing.
Our contribution "Mixed-Integer Real-time Control of a Building Energy Supply System" (A. Burda, D. Bitner, F. Bestehorn, C. Kirches, M. Grotjahn) has been accepted for publication in IEEE Control Systems Letters.
How does water flow over a rapids? How does air flow around a car body? Is it possible to compute this? Is there a basic mathematical model for this, just as there are Newton's laws for the motion of solid bodies? A basic model of fluid mechanics are the Navier--Stokes equations. They are more complicated than Newton's laws and for complex applications one has to approximate them or resort to experiments (e.g. in a wind tunnel).
This Monday, a student workshop in cooperation with the IFAS (Institut für Flugantriebe und Strömungsmaschinen) took place on the Automotive Research Centre Niedersachsen. We welcomed 25 students aged from 10 to 16 years.
A new Special Issue on the Interplay of Discrete Optimization and Machine Learning in the journal "Frontiers in Applied Mathematics and Statistics", edited by A. M. Tillmann, E. Khalil, G. Munoz and S. Pokutta, is now welcoming submissions. For more information and to participate, visit the research topic website.
