Time: December 13-15, 2018

Place: Hanoi Pedagogical University 2, Xuan Hoa, Vinh Phuc, Vietnam

 

Variational Analysis is a powerful tool to study optimization problems and equilibrium problems. The advanced techniques based on the notions of tangent and normal cones to sets, derivative and coderivative of multifuntions, subdifferentials of extended-real-valued functions, together with the comprehensive calculus rules not only help to analyze these problems analytically, but also allow ones to construct efficient algorithms to solve them.

Having a PhD program in Analysis, a master program in Applied Mathematics, and a group of active researchers in Optimization Theory and Equilibrium Theory, Hanoi Pedagogical University 2 organizes this International Workshop Variational Analysis and Related Topics” (December 13-15, 2018) to create a forum for experts and young researchers in Variational Analysis, Optimization Theory, and Equilibrium Theory to exchange new ideas, techniques, and results.

This Workshop is dedicated to Professor Boris Mordukhovich's 70th birthday. His distinguished contributions to Variational Analysis, Optimization Theory, and Equilibrium Theory will be highlighted.

All participants will be provided with accommodations and meals. Several Vietnamese and foreign invited speakers will receive airfare support.
