Gideon Weiss - A simplex-type algorithm for continuous linear programs with constant coefficients

Seminar | August 29 | 3:30-5 p.m. | 3108 Etcheverry Hall

Gideon Weiss, The University of Haifa

Industrial Engineering & Operations Research

Joint work with Evgeny Shindin.

ABSTRACT: We consider continuous linear programs over a continuous finite time horizon T, with a constant coefficient matrix, linear right hand side functions and linear cost coefficient functions, where we search for optimal solutions in the space of measures or of functions of bounded variation. These models generalize the separated continuous linear......   More >

Dissertation Talk: &#34;Erasure Coding for Big-data Systems: Theory and Practice&#34;

Presentation | August 31 | 2-3 p.m. | 380 Soda Hall

Rashmi Vinayak

Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)

Erasure codes are being increasingly deployed as an alternative to data replication in large-scale, distributed storage systems to achieve fault tolerance in a storage-efficient manner. While traditional erasure codes are optimal in utilizing storage space, they significantly increase the usage of other important resources such as network, I/O, and CPU.

In the first part of this thesis, we......   More >
