Group Leaders: Hua Zhou, Eric Chi, Ekkehard Sachs, Dirk Lorenz

SAMSI Webmaster: Liuyi Hu

Weekly Meetings: Friday 1:00-3:00pm ET

Description:  The group will study specific problems for scaling up EM/MM algorithms. Candidate problems include adapting acceleration techniques for first order methods for convex optimization problems and adapting methods for distributive coordinate descent methods.

News and Updates: Coming soon…
