DESCRIPTION:
Applied Mathematics\n
\n
David P. Woodruff, Carnegie
Mellon University, will be speaking.\n
\n
Th epresentation is titled "A Very Sketchy Talk."\n
\n
Contact
Olga Turanova (turanova@msu.edu)
for more information.\n
\n
We give an overview
of dimensionality reduction methods, or sketching,
for a number of problems in optimization,
first surveying work using these methods
for classical problems, which gives near optimal
algorithms for regression, low rank approximation,
and natural variants. We then survey
recent work applying sketching to column
subset selection, kernel methods, sublinear
algorithms for structured matrices, tensors,
trace estimation, and so on. The focus in the
talk will be on fast algorithms.\n\n
