Neil Chada ***CANCELLED DUE TO COVID-19 OUTBREAK*** On optimal annealing schedules for Langevin algorithms (Joint with work Huy Chau)

12:00 - 13:00 07 April 2020

***This seminar has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 outbreak.*** Abstract: Simulated annealing is a popular optimization method designed to find global minimizers through perturbing dynamics with Gaussian noise. The continuous analogue of it is a diffusion process arising from a Langevin stochastic differential equation. In this work we co..

The structural importance of these actors is assessed in terms of ce..

Louise Wright - Maths, modelling and measurement: data science at the National Physical Laboratory

12:00 - 13:00 05 May 2020

Abstract: The National Physical Laboratory (NPL) is the UK’s National Measurement Institute. We are responsible for realising and disseminating the seven SI base units, ensuring that measurements made in the UK are comparable to measurements the world over. This work underpins not only UK trade and quality of life, but also ensures that fund..
