On Thu., Jan 26th, J. Malick defended its Habilitation to direct researches entitled “Variational-analysis look at combinatorial optimization and other selected topics in optimization” at the Maison Jean Kuntzmann, on the Grenoble Campus in front of an international jury composed of:
- Alexandre d’Aspremont, ENS Ulm
- Jérome Bolte, Toulouse School of Economics
- Gérard Cornuéjols, Carnegie Mellon University
- Jean Lasserre, LAAS-CNRS
- Nabil Layaida, Inria
- Yurii Nesterov, Université de Louvain (Belgique)
- Michael Overton, Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, NYU
The jury unanimously enjoyed the clarity of the manuscript and presentation as well as the pertinence of his research in modern optimization.
A. Juditsky gave an invited talk at the SMAI-MAS/MODE day in Paris, Jan 9 about “linear recovery from Gaussian observations” [PDF].
