This talk for the WoMBaT workshop is a shorter version of recent presentations on subdifferential calculus with some additional insights that I learned recently from Kaiwen Meng and Minghua Li.
The meeting will be held in Melbourne (RMIT City Campus, room 8.9.66) on 24–25 November.
The topics of the workshop include error bounds, metric (sub) regularity, Aubin property and calmness, transversality of collections of sets, subdifferential characterisations and applications of these properties to estimating the convergence of fundamental optimisation algorithms. Our keynote is Professor Marco Lopez from the University of Alicante, Spain, who is visiting Australia in November.
We'll have an informal workshop on the geometry of polytopes at RMIT on 17 November 2016. For more information see http://www.polytopes.rmitopt.org/.
