Algorithms and applications of high dimensional approximation

The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers working on different methods for high-dimensional problems.

  • 22 Nov 2018, 8.30am to 23 Nov 2018, 11.50am GMT
  • Wolfson lecture theatre, 4 West, 1.7, University of Bath
  • This event is free

Multivariate functions arise naturally in statistics, uncertainty quantification, optimal control, quantum mechanics and other applications. There exist different ways of working with high-dimensional functions and data: sampling, polynomial approximations, separation of variables. Depending on assumptions, one or another of these techniques might be preferable. Even more promising might be a combination of those.

The workshop will include several talks on high-dimensional algorithms and applications, as well as opportunity to discuss further development of this area.
