Modeling real-world processes as convex optimization or variational inequality problems is a common practice as it enables to leverage powerful mathematical tools for the study of such processes. For example, in transportation science, the selfish behavior of agents (from shorted path routing) leads to an aggregate cost in the network worse than the systems optimum, and which can be analytically...

I will explain how to build Koornwinder polynomials at q = t from moments of Askey-Wilson polynomials. I will use the combinatorial theory of Viennot for orthogonal polynomials and their moments. An extension of this theory allows to build multivariate orthogonal polynomials. The key step for this construction are a Cauchy identity for Koornwinder polynomials and a Jacobi-Trudi formula for the... More >

Humans ultra-social lifeways are based on some species-unique social skills and motivations that develop mostly in early childhood.

First is the way that young children come to self-regulate their actions not just individually, as do many species, but also socially, as they become concerned for how others... More >
