Semidefinite programming refers to the problem of minimizing a linear objective subject to semidefiniteness constraints involving symmetric matrices that are affine in the decision variables. Such a model of computation has enjoyed tremendous interest recently, due to its ubiquity in many areas of science and engineering. This workshop will cover theory and algorithms of SDP and several application areas, including but not limited to:

  • algebraic geometry,
  • combinatorial optimization,
  • control theory,
  • machine learning and statistics, and
  • finance and networks.
