High performance computing algorithms for discrete optimization
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2017-11-03)
This thesis concerns the application of High Performance Computing to Discrete Optimization, and the development of massively parallel algorithms designed to accelerate the solving process of Mixed-Integer Programs (MIPs). ...
Calculation, utilization, and inference of spatial statistics in practical spatio-temporal data
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2017-08-02)
The direct influence of spatial and structural arrangement in various length scales to the performance characteristics of materials is a core premise of materials science. Spatial correlations in the form of n-point ...
Adaptive visual network analytics: Algorithms, interfaces, and systems for exploration and querying
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2017-10-04)
Large graphs are now commonplace, amplifying the fundamental challenges of exploring, navigating, and understanding massive data. Our work tackles critical aspects of graph sensemaking, to create human-in-the-loop network ...
Algorithms and analysis for non-convex optimization problems in machine learning
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2017-05-10)
In this thesis, we propose efficient algorithms and provide theoretical analysis through the angle of spectral methods for some important non-convex optimization problems in machine learning. Specifically, we focus on two ...
Parallel simulation of scale-free networks
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2017-08-01)
It has been observed that many networks arising in practice have skewed node degree distributions. Scale-free networks are one well-known class of such networks. Achieving efficient parallel simulation of scale-free networks ...
