Projection methods -- a guided tour

Abstract: Projection methods are conceptually simple yet powerful algorithms for solving feasibility and approximation problems. I will survey classical and modern results on projection methods. Theoretical (weak vs strong convergence), practical (approximation and acceleration), and applied (phase retrieval) aspects will be considered.

PIMS Tea and refreshments will be served between 3:00-3:35 p.m. in WMAX 101 (the PIMS Library).
